Post 307: Mixed Media Tag (Butterfly)

Hi friends !

Hows your weekend going ?

I'd like to share a Mixed Media Tag. This was part of my DT work for Bob n Betty. All the details can be found here. For this tag, I used snippets of pattern paper in the background & thread for texture. Then did watercoloring using zig markers. Texture paste was applied using the Itsy Bitsy Leaf Stencil. The butterfly was die cut using faux leather and the Cutplorations Flutter Zen 1 Layering Die. To bring out the texture in the leather, I rubbed on some green inka gold and it gave a wonderful shine. Gauze was added under the butterfly. The edges were darkened with black soot distress ink. In the end, a few green sequins were added for shine. 

Here is a photo of the tag:

Here are a couple of close-up photos:

I am playing along with the following challenges:

Cutplorations October Challenge (was inspired by the colors)- used a butterfly cutplorations die here.
Tagplorations October Challenge (fall theme- shown falling leaves)

Butterfly Challenge #87- Vertical (the papers, stenciled leaves & thread are all added vertically) 

Thanks a lot for your time :)
Love reading your sweet comments.
Stay Blessed!
