Butterfly Tag (by Magda)

Hello Ladies, soon it will be time to look at the colourful dancers of the meadows.
Many of you watched Lesley's show on Hochanda and here I want to show you a Tag with Butterflies.

Step by Step
1.  Blend a Manila Tag with Distress Ink Pad, using the following colours: blue, green, dark brown
     and yellow
2.  Cover randomly part of the tag with Dina Wakley Media white Gesso  and let it dry
3.  Remove the layers of an already stamped tissue paper and glue only one layer with Inkssentials
     Glue n Seal matte- be careful: don't break the thin tissue paper
4.  Stamp on a white tissue paper a little butterfly from the Just Butterflies stamp set with Versafine Onyx 
     Black  and glue the butterfly on the tag as you did previously
5.  Colour lightly the tag with Distress Ink Pad - Antique Linen
6.  From an A4 white cardstock prepare a decoupage Butterfly  stamped with Versafine Onyx 
     Black  and colour it with Distress Ink Pad using matching colours to your background.
7.  Dye a piece of Rayon Seam Binding Ribbon as an embellishment for your tag.

Take a flight with the beautiful Chocolate Baroque Butterflies and see you soon with another project.
