Papillon postcard

Happy new year!!
I've been sorting out my craft room and came across a colour copy of the back of an old postcard so I decided to use it as the base of a tag.

There came a point in it's making when I really didn't like this tag!  I'd coloured the middle moth but re-stamping it onto plain white paper and gluing it over the top retrieved it for me.  I repeated this for the other butterfly and moth too.

 The green at the top was still a little too green but a smudge of cream paint through a stencil here and there knocked it back a little and now I like it :)

I seem to have a theme going in my journals at the moment, but I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do with these brightly coloured backgrounds!  Although I do quite like this tag on there ....


  1. Brilliant fiery colours in your journal, the tag looks great against such a contrast.
    Hope you are feeling loads better & continue to gain strength.

    Hope 2014 brings you what you need & want:-) xxx

  2. scrumptious Sarah. I do like those butterfly stamps and doesn't it look good against the journal background.

  3. Love the tag - well rescued (we seem to be doing some rescuing between us!) and I love the journal pages - wonderful bright colours for a very very dull January day!! Happy New Year, hope 2014 is wonderful for you.

  4. Love that tag Sarah and the journal page is so vibrant - brill!
    Nice to see a familiar face - hope I see you soon (like Port Sunny?)
    Happy New Year, Hugs, Neet xx

  5. Gorgeous! I LOVE the bright background :-) Happy new year to you!

  6. Brilliant tag! Love those bright backgrounds and yes the tag does sit beautifully there! A very Happy New Year to you - and I think a play day should be sooner rather than later this year! Hugs, Chrisx

  7. This is really an artful tag, Sarah! Love how you re-stamped these winged beauties onto card and attached them--adding a bit of texture to it. Very creative to have added a layer at the top for interest, too. Well choreographed, I say! Happy New Year, my friend!

  8. Love the journal pages ..... I can see who the tag would work if put onto the pages!

  9. Love the contrast of the tag and the background! Happy New Year!

  10. Yeah that contrasting tag could really work on there. Love your kind of images and flowers going on. We have a similar taste :0)

  11. This is lovely& looks brilliant on your journal page too!


Thanks for leaving a comment; it makes my day!!
