This is just one of the Tags i have made for a monthly swap i do, again with my fellow Angels.
This month the subject is Oriental, and well lets just say i was in my element, i adore all things oriental, and having struggled with the last few months topics, this month i was happy as a crafter with new stash, and managed about 5 or 6 (these can be seen in my bucket)
I used 3 of my absolute fav stamps on this one, Lotus by Stampington & Co, Brush Butterfly and Wings by Penny Black, also used is the Martha Stewart Gothic Alphabet.
This wasn't excatly a hard tag to do, i started with a handmade white tag 6" x 3"
Stamped the lotus lady down one side using Black archival, and then stamped and cut out the brush butterfly in black soot distress ink from a seperate piece of white card, which i attatched to the edge of the tag with silicone glue.
The second side was covered with a paper i printed from one of the many papers cd's i have, i think this one was a Craftymizz one. Again stamped the wings (tatty moth) on a seperate bit of card using black soot and cut and mounted with silicone. I lightly edged all the way round with a bit of cut and dry foam and black soot disrtess ink, and the wording, which finished the tag off, i choose mainly from looking at the 2 penny black stamps and thinking that it is always the butterfly that gets all the attention, but a moth is just as beautiful if you take the time to look.
Take for examply this beauty, It is a Giant Moth, i had to get a pic when i visited a butterfly attraction last year
I know alot of us struggle with the way we look in some form or another
but you should always remember
Tall or Short
Fat or Thin
Your real Beauty
