Flutterby Tag Card

Hello There, Welcome to my Crafting Blog.
So today I have a Tag Card to share with you, it was created using lots of different crafting materials.

To start off with I wanted to create a Poppy, but instead of stamping onto card I thought I would use tissue paper and put the image into a large bottle cap which I purchased from IndigoBlu, so I first painted the cap red, once dry I glued in the stamped and coloured Poppy head image. For the stem of the poppy I used gold embossing powder and added a little green colour with SU markers, the buds of the poppy were coloured red and crystal effects were added over the top! 


The main background was made by stamping with VersaMark ink and gold embossing powder using the Dinky 'Flutterby' Stamp. 

The small butterflies on the card were stamped onto shrinkies plastic with StaZon Inks, shrunk then one of them was made into a hanging embellishment and the other one was glued onto the stem of the poppy!


The Butterfly on the poppy was made using the modeling film and StaZon inks as in my previous post. Tiny black beads were added to the poppy once I had coated it in clear embossing powder and coloured beads were added to the butterflies! 
To finish off the card I layered the black and gold piece onto a piece of Stampin up Coastal Cabana card, then onto a black card blank!
Although I have done an Inspirational piece already for the IndigoBlu challenge I thought I would put this card forward for this months Blog challenge to see if I might have a chance of winning a stamp!
Well if you don't try.......................................
Happy Crafting, Sue xx
