Today I am starting with a piece of Bristol Board and Distress Inks. Very simply, I just applied the colors with various intensity.
Next I used the Large Leaf Bliss ARTplorations stencil and white multi-surface acrylic to add another layer.
After letting the painted layer dry, this is the completed background. I wanted to show the tag before adding any more to it.
I stamped the awesome butterfly using the STAMPlorations Blossom like a Butterfly stamp set. I smooshed the dry stamped butterfly into puddles of Nuance powders, it is another water soluble powdered dye with intense color. I Dymo'd (not a word I know hehe) the sentiment. To me this tag is all about simple.
Taaa-daa! "Freedom", the tag is complete. I clipped the corners and inked the edges with Abandoned Coral to partially frame the butterfly. The blue is left open like the sky, unbounded.
I hope you have a wonderfully colorful day! Thanks for reading :)
