Hel's Angels Tag Swap

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
Lies Within
