Butterfly tag with a twist!

Not sure where I got this idea from, having the tag with butterflies also being a butterfly, but I just had to go with it so the text is very appropriate! It is for the challenges Grungy Monday #6, Simon Says Stamp & Show (Anything goes) and PaperMinutes (Wings).

J’ai créé une étiquette plein de papillons pour les défis Grungy Monday #6, Simon Says Stamp and Show et PaperMinutes (les ailes). 
The Grungy Monday challenge is a technique demonstrated by Tim Holtz on his tag #8 from 2007 which I have used directly on the tag. Not having a suitable colour of paint dabber, I coloured some white acrylic paint with Stream ColorWash and applied it with a tooth brush! I then used pumice Stone and Black Soot Distress Ink. The large wings were printed on to card and painted with Lumiere paint, as were the little ones cut with the Sizzix Movers and Shapers Butterflies designed by Tim. All the stamping is with Tim Holtz stamps and Black Stazon. Unfortunately the flash seems to have picked up a sheen on the ink but not the Rock Candy Stickles smeared on the small butterflies for extra sparkle.

Le défi du Grungy Monday est d’utiliser une technique montré par Tim Holtz du décembre 2007J'ai appliqué la technique sur l’étiquette, utilisant l’acrylique blanche coloré avec ColorWash ‘Stream’ et l’encres Distress en Pumice Stone et Black Soot. J’ai découpé les petits papillons avec le Sizzix ‘mover and shaper’ die dessiné par Tim Holtz et j’ai imprimé le grand papillon. Je leur ai donné une couche de peinture Lumière et du Stickles Rock Candy. Toutes les images ont tamponnées avec les tampons de Tim en la Stazon noire.
