Tuesday Trigger - Believe in Your Dreams Tag

This week's Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World is:
My first thought when looking at this picture was to make a tag. I searched through my paper pads until I found the right background paper (BasicGrey 6x6 Oxford ).  I stamped and gold embossed along the top and bottom to tie in with the gold trim on the plate (Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden Collection stamp set).  I felt the background was  a little too plain, so I stamped Penny Black Letter Background on the tag. I used Memento Rich Cocoa and stamped it first on a scrap piece of paper so the image wouldn't be too strong.The butterflies are from Hero Arts /Sizzix - Butterflies #3.  I used Copics to colour my butterflies (BG10,15; E95,97). I stamped the HA sentiment in Rich Cocoa and clear embossed it.  I was having a problem with the ink drying too fast before putting the embossing powder on, so I used the Versamark pad first, then inked it up with the Rich Cocoa. It didn't dry as fast and the clear embossing powder stuck really well (not sure if that is good for my ink pad, though?) The sheer ribbon was coloured with E95 to match the butterflies. I added a few pearls and gems to give it a little sparkle. The edges have been distressed with Tim Holtz distress inks Antique Linen and Walnut Stain.


I am also entering my tag in:

Have a great day!
