Funky butterflies....

Hello bloggers!

I've got my fingers crossed that this blog post appears at 6.30am Tuesday morning.... I'm trying to learn how to schedule a post and have failed miserably so far lol!!

I made this tag using distress inks and the aid of my splodge mat.  I used a Kaiser craft stamp for the distressed bits on the tag, and another lovely 'wordy' stamp from The Artistic Stamper.  The butterfly is called Luna and is from Designs by Ryn.  I dripped alcohol inks onto acetate, took some ink off with the alcohol solvent and then stamped the butterfly on the other side of the acetate.  I then mounted the butterfly onto a piece of white card stamped with the same image.  I'm enjoying doing this sort of 'messy' craft now, it's only taken me about 17 years to get here.... ! :D


Thank you for popping by, and thank you lovely ladies who left me such great comments on my last post, I do appreciate them! :) xxxx

Gorgeous Wendy! Love the colours and the inking/stenciling on the background. Scheduling posts is a bit scary at first, but it's actually pretty easy and it works ! Take care, Shirleyxx

Gorgeous use of colours Wendy! Your tag with the lovely butterflies looks great.

(about my blogposts...I can't make video's and I often just go with the flow, whilst creating..so it's hard to make pictures too...that's why I write the process under the pictures...you can use Google Translate on my blog)
Thanks for your nice comments too!

Kind regards, Alie :-)
