Tag you're it - wings....

This week its my turn to choose the theme for the challenge over at Tag you're it....so, I chose "wings" - there are loads of things that this theme can incorporate; planes, butterflies, birds, insects, zetti......let your imagination run riot and go for it!!!!

Here's my tag for this week...

The base is a kraft tag - I then placed Heidi Swapp "butterfly" mini masks on the base and added distress inks, moving the masks around to get more coverage - the base was then spritz with cosmic shimmer mixed with warm water. The centre piece is a piece of stampbord, coloured with distress inks and stamped with a hero arts butterfly from a very old set! this was then hi lighted using stampbord tools and guess what? the edges were daubed with gold dauber!! (roflxx), this same butterfly was then used to "second generation stamp" over the background tag.... Using a butterfly stamp from another hero arts set I created some fantasy film butterflies which were then added, a few stamped words and some fibres finished it off....

Pop on over to the tag your it blog and see the fab tags the dt have come up with - I can't wait to visit your blogs and see what you come up with...
