Dragons dream tag

Hello there, Horace here again to show you the tag I made for this fortnight's Dragons dream challenge. The recipe is to use orange, purple and butterflies, what a great theme. Here's my creation.

I started by inking my tag

This was the reverse of a previously made 'gone wrong' tag. I thought I'd utilise it for this challenge rather than waste it, serendipitously it was already splattered with some orange Dylusions mist so my job was half done. I dabbed distress ink through our harlequin mask, then added concord distress ink to the edges of the tag.

I foraged in the stamp box, and found these little beauties.

Which I inked, again with the lovely concord distress ink. I stamped several butterflies, as you never know how many you may need. I then dabbed more concord ink onto the stamped butterflies, to add colour to the white areas of the image.

Podgy allowed me to use some of his special glue to adhere my elements to my tag, isn't he kind?

I loved making my tag, and look forward to the next challenge, what fun.

With love from the bears.
