Journey Tag

I wanted to make a card that linked up with a few challenges and had hoped to be off my butterfly craze, but unfortunately I've still got a few to finish and use!

I sponged over the stamped and embossed Journey stamp with distress inks. The tag looks yellower in real life but I think when I've spritzed the water it's landed more in the centre.

I'm linking up to the Holiday challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More

At Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge the theme is not so mellow yellow!

At Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge the theme is anything goes.

Materials used:
Memory Box journey; Hero Arts buterfly stamps; Versafine ink & clear embossing powder; distress inks; inktense pencils; stylized flower embossing folder.

Thanks for visiting :)

Beautiful!! I don't think you can ever have enough butterflies on creations myself :o) Thanks so much for joining us this week at ATS&M.

Wow! When you incorporate butterflies as beautifully as you did, there is no need to apologize for being in a "crazed butterfly" mode! I love the simplicity of this tag, yet it is also so elegant and sophisticated. The text background looks stunning against the dimensional butterfly, which looks so realistic! You've also done a masterful job with your coloring techniques. Truly a lovely tag and I hope you keep working with butterflies! Thanks so much for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
