"Orange and Purple Butterfly"

is this fortnight's recipe at DragonsDreamTagItOn.

Great choice of colours and quite tricky to combine with the butterfly theme...here comes my take on this challenge:


I took some card for the background which originally was from a shoe box I used as colour spraying box - therefore the shading from light orange to dark purple was there already ;)

I added the flourish using texture paste and a stencil and sprayed it with GlimmerMists after it was dry.

The background paper for stamping my favourite butterflies on was made bathing and dipping the paper in dots and puddles of purple and orange GlimmerMists and Distress inks.

The originally orange flowers were treated the same way and also stamped with buttefly images to add some texture.



I stamped and heat embossed some script rather randomly onto the tag using dark purple embossing powder. After assembling the whole tag I sprinkled some colours (Mr. Huey's and GlimmerMist) directly onto it to turn the tag from too lovely into more grungy until I was content with the result.






Hope, you like it too ;)
Hugs,
