Butterfly Tag

It's Tuesday so that means another challenge over at Try it on Tuesday.
It's TAG week with the theme of BUTTERFLIES
Here is my creation.

I decided to try out the acetate and gilding flakes technique that Barbara Gray demonstrated on C&C last week. So thank you Barbara and  Gwen. 
I took a sheet of double sided sticky paper and peeled away the protective paper from one side. I then inked up the stamp (Imagination) with Stazon and stamped directly onto the sticky.  I laid a piece of acetate (cut the same size as the sticky paper) over the sticky paper.  I peeled the protective paper from the back and spread gilding flakes over the sticky & voila! I then cut out the tag shape and mounted it onto a piece of cor'dinations card and distressed the edges. I added a couple of butterflies cut using an MS punch and added a bit of stickles.
Well I hope you like it and if you'd like to see more please do pop over to the Try it on Tuesday challenge blog to see what my fellow teamies have come up with. you'll be glad you did.
Thank you so much for stopping by today and it would be lovely if you decided to join us for the challenge.
Have a good day
