D Is For…….

Published March 1, 2012 by isisimaginings

Happy March 1st, blog visitors!  I looked out the kitchen window this morning & there are FOUR daffodils in glorious bloom in the back garden – Spring is definitely on its way.

Here is today’s tag.  It is number four in the Chocolate Baroque Alpha Tags Swap for 2012.  I decided to see if I could pare everything back, stick to one main colour, use no backing papers or layers & this is the result.

D is for:

  • Dream
  • Dusty Concord
  • Diecuts
  • Decoupage

Ingredients:

  • Chocolate Baroque Punky Romance & Patchwork Butterfly stamp collections
  • Dusty Concord & Antique Linen distress inks
  • Spellbinders Donna Salazar sprockets & gears dies
  • Manilla tag

Step by Step:

  1. Stamp image with Dusty Concord, dry with heat tool.
  2. Put DC on craft sheet, spritz with water & with a small brush paint areas of image.
  3. When image is dry blend Antique Linen & DC inks over tag.
  4. Stamp butterfly from image on scrap paper, colour as above, dry & cut out wings, stick them to butterfly on tag.
  5. Die cut two small gears from mirri card, attach to tag.
  6. Add highlights & handwritten ‘Dream’ with silver ink.
  7. Add bling & ribbon.
 

That’s it.  Maybe I shouldn’t blow my own trumpet, but I’m happy with this tag.  If nothing else, I proved to myself that I don’t have to add lots of stuff to my projects. 

Until next time – I’d like to say tomorrow, but it’s more likely to be Saturday – thanks for looking.

Love & light.
