Butterfly Tag

I made this card for the tag challenge this week at My Unity Place. I used a Unity Itty Bitty Set called Be You. I embossed the images and sponged on the background with distress inks. Thanks for taking a look!

Tag - (Tim Holtz)
Stamp Set - Be You (Unity Stamp Company)
Ink - Distress Inks - Antique Linen, Victorian Velvet, Peeled Paint (Tim Holtz)
Embossing Powder - Filigree - White (Papertrey Ink)
Buttons - Yello Candy Dots (Pebbles)
Flower Trim (Maya Road)
Twine (The Twinery)
Pearls (Stampin Up)
Rick Rack- white and cream (local craft store)

1. Emboss Butterfly and Sentiment on tag in white
2. Sponge on Antique Linen Distress ink over whole tag, then sponge on Victorian Velvet concentrating on the areas over the white embossing, then sponge the Peeled Paint around the edges
3. Ink the edges with Victorian Velvet
4. Add trims, buttons and pearls


  1. How very pretty and so feminine. I love the rose ribbon trim and the buttons are great too!

  2. Wow, what a beauty! The trim is a perfect accent to your colors and the butterfly.


I appreciate your comments.
