Try it on a Tuesday - altered art "dream"

Its ages since I did a piece for a challenge blog! but, today whilst browsing thro' blogs and linking from one to another I came across "Try it on a Tuesday" who, this week are sponsored by "The Craft Barn" and the brief was "Altered art - themed "dream" - I have lots of favourite stamps - and this is one of them - I've had it for ages and you might well have seen it before:-

My tag was coloured using distress stains and then overstamped with text in brown ink - the D "dream" stamp was stamped using black versafine - I then spritzed the tag with perfect pearls in gold - now doing this on versafine isn't a good idea!!!! the colour ran a little but not too bad! the stamp was then hi-lighted using white pen.  The butterfly is made from art institute film with fibres inbetween the two sheets so that they melted...(can't remember the name of the film and have thrown away the packets!).  The little tag is one of my hero Tim Holtz with a "dream" saying.  The ribbon was coloured using the same distress stains as the background, and the maya road ribbon at the bottom was coloured using distress stains in wild honey and walnut stain.....
