Wings Tag

I just had to make something with a piece of my free mount board - so made a tag.

This is for the Lots to Do Challenge this week.

I graduated the colours from hot red at the bottom through to deep orange and paler until it ended up a warm yellow at the top - but the photos do not show the depth of colour or the graduation sadly, and there is not a line of red - it's the flash of the camera tsk. I made this late in the afternoon and it was dusk.

Using the same colours I dabbed over some sequin scrap to add areas of deeper colour, then stamped the image at the bottom.


It's that butterfly again - the free download, which I have just enhanced with deeper shades of its colours - which in 'real life' to match the colours exactly on the tag.

I just love the texture of heat embossing so it got a clear coat of embossing powder




I brushed over Cosmic shimmer powder in an orange colour which matches exactly the top colour of the tag - but sadly you can't see the wonderful warm shimmer, and how it softens the sequin scrap 'dots' and the dark stamped image at the bottom. I added the stamped ART and some deep brown organza ribbon across the bottom, and a narrower ribbon for the tag top with matching beads.

The mount board was really nice to work on - and makes a nice change from paper glued onto a piece of cereal box!

Hi Lottie,

I love this tag. The colours are so rich and vibrant and the butterfly, well one can I say......just lovely. The bead accent finishes the tag off beautifully, might have to 'borrow' that idea!!! LOL!!!

this is beautiful, the lovely warm rich colour of a late summer evening. Mountboard is great to work on isn't it, you get rigidity and a nice smooth surface to work on.
