Time Flies!

So finally i managed to get back into my craft room for some much needed play time... I've combined 3 challenges
Compendium of Curiosities = 'Rusted Enamel'
Simon Says Stamp'n'Show = 'Embossing'
& Just for Fun = 'Time Flies'
I followed the rusted enamel instructions on page 41, then i embossed the whole tag using a TSS kabuka mold, I lightly rubbed some brown stazon over the top to highlight the embossing, finally i added some butterflies punched out of lost and found clock paper.
 Not the most technical of tags but the old mojo is hiding.
Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget there are only a few days left to get in on my OWOH giveaway, i will be drawing winners on the 17th around 6pm GMT

Nicky, this is absolutely gorgeous! The embossing takes that pretty rusted enamel to a whole new level of awesome! The butterflies add such a sweet feel.

Good grief, if you can make something this wonderful when your mojo is hiding, you're a miracle worker! It's fabulous, my dear!
