french butterfly tag

I so appreciate being on the Stampotique Designers' team; it gets me making something every week!  I ReaLLY enjoyed making this tag :)  I got some happy post this week and some of the stamps I used were in it...

When I ordered the stamps I had the idea of combining both Papillon stamps to form the background but changed my mind after stamping the script version.

I folded some paper over the base of the tag to mask the bottom inch or so then repeatedly stamped Papillon Script with a black ink pad.

I'm afraid this is as far as I got with the step by step photos so I'll just have to describe it to you!  I stamped the large butterfly on some pre-sprayed paper, and stamped the centre of it (inking it up first then masking the wings with post-its) onto the tag so that I kept the detail of the antennae after cutting out the butterfly.

After spraying some dylusions slate grey ink onto a strip of plastic (acting as a palette) I tried stamping with this and got a lovely effect which I then stamped row of numbers onto.

A few scraps of stamped and sprayed paper collaged onto the edges and my tag was done.  Hope you like it!!

  3. Beautiful Tag Sarah, gorgeous colours and fab script stamp:-)

  4. What a great idea using the one stamp and making a background !
    Beautiful tag Sarah I just love the colours you choose.... Well just love it all!
    And I agree with what you say about being on the team really makes us create more and gives us the drive !

  5. This is gorgeous Sarah - and my favourite colours too. I have to admit that I find some of the Stampotique stamps a little too strange for my taste, but these are all lovely!
    Have a nice time at Port Sunlight tomorrow if you're going. I won't be there unfortunately - sad face!

  6. This is one awesome tag !

  7. I haven't used my Stampotique stamps for ages Sarah - think you can reach overload with a certain style sometimes, but your gorgeous tag is making me itch to get them out again. Jo created some lovely stamps.

  8. An absolutely beautiful tag, Sarah! Love your repeated use of the script stamp for your background. Your butterfly is brilliant--totally so!

  9. The butterfly is just gorgeous on your tag.

  10. This is SO effective, Sarah - looks brilliantly dramatic! Lovely x
