Butterfly Art Tag~Mid-Month Mixed Media Mojo Inspiration

Happy Mid-Week!

Hope you all had a spectacular weekend and lovely Valentine's Day!

I have a fun tag to share with you today as Inspiration for our challenge at Mixed Media Mojo. The theme is Red and the Twist is Wings! You still have lots of time to play, we do hope you will join us and share this with your friends!

Here we go!

I made a manila tag, cut from a file folder. I used Distress Paint on the background. I misted the tag with water and pulled it through the paint on my craft mat. I let it dry then pressed it into the paint again to pick up more color and more spots. Once the paint was dry, I sprayed Dylusions red ink on it to make more red.

The butterfly stamps are Unity and I stamped them with Archival Ink, Jet Black. I painted the butterfly cut out using Distress Ink and a waterbrush. The "#here&now stamp" is Heidi Swapp.

The flowers are Tim Holtz Tattered Florals. They are inked with Distress Ink, Vintage Photo and splattered with Distress Paint, Picket Fence.  The two square embellies are Tim Holtz stickers. I sanded them because they were too shiny and clean, they had to be "aged". The "Remember" stamp is JilliBean.

I made the coil tag holder from craft wire bent around a paint brush. The heart embellie above it I also made. I glued some gear findings onto a wood heart. then I covered the heart with aluminum foil. I pressed it down. I used some black acrylic paint to cover the whole heart. Once dry I used some gold Rub N Buff to bring up the shapes.

Thanks so much for visiting!

I really hope you have time to play and share with us at Mixed Media Mojo!

Have a great day!
