Metal butterfly tag

Easy and fun project :-)
Graphic45 Olde curiosity shoppe papers and metal butterfly

For the tag i used corrugated chipboard. Sew around, painted with white and distressed with brown and green. The papers are Olde curiosity shoppe and i used a metal butterfly and metal brads. Also used a pen nib that i painted and crackled . some feathers for the tail. Had so fun to use all the new things from G45

Painted with white and distressed it with vintage photo and forest moss

Cut out and tear some papers

Layersd them on the currugated chipboard

Sew around with my sewing machine

Used 2 brads from G45 and a pen nib from Tim Holtz

Painted and crackled the pen nib and had to put on some eyes :-)

Thanks for stopping by and i wish you all a great day :-)

Your attention to detail is phenomenal and your eye for beauty goes without saying! I too make handmade albums but am just beginning, in my dreams I will be as good as!!! Please keep making videos to teach the rest of us...
