Golden Flourish's

Hi everyone hope you are all well! I have for you today
a tag which  falls into the Challenge title which is 
'Summer is on its way'. Why not play along 
with us this month.

My tag today has been created by using the following Artistic
 Stamper Stamps, Flourish background, insects and
 butterflies & calligraphy mat 12.

I used the thinlets die to cut the shapes into a craft tag.
I had coloured a piece of card with adirondack washes 
then sprayed lightly with water to blend.

Next I tripple embossed using two coats of gold embossing powders 
and one of clear utee. I then stamped the flourish
stamp into the hot embossing powder.

I coloured the die cut craft tag with distress ink which I blended 
of the craft mat.  I spritzed with water to activate it.

Next I sprinkled gold embossing powder over it and heat set
from underneath to stop it blowing away.

I sprayed gently picket fence distress stain spray over that.

I used the same method to make the butterfly but I stamped it twice
and then built the butterfly up. Alcohol ink was
applied till I was happy
with the result.

Next I used glossy accents in the die cuts to highlight area's prior
to it drying fully I lightly sprinkled gold embossing
 powder & heat set. 

I matted it to lime green card then black I hope you have all 
enjoyed my post today and feel inspired to join 
with us this month in our challenge. 
As always I would love to know 
what you think.
Cheers Dee x
