Butterflies Everywhere at Fashionable Stamping Challenges

Over at FASHIONABLE STAMPING CHALLENGES the theme for the current challenge is 'Butterflies or Bugs', so I chose butterflies and decided to make a tag bookmark.  Very handy for the voluminous book I've just started reading!!  Click the link above or scroll down the sidebar to check out the challenge for yourself.

I started with thick cream card stock cut to size, rounded the corners and punched a hole for an eyelet using my Crop-A-Dile.  I lightly stamped the tag with a music score stamp using Distress Ink in Pumice Stone and then sprayed over the whole tag with Glimmer Mist in Gingerbread.  When dry I lightly stamped the music score again in the same colour and then using Crafty Individuals CI - 061, stamped the large butterfly, once onto the tag using Distress Ink in Rusty Hinge and once onto cream card with Vintage Photo.  I over stamped the card with a smaller butterfly in Brushed Corduroy,  cut out the second butterfly and adhered with dimensional glue.  I inked the edge of the tag using Rusty Hinge, inserted the brown eyelet and threaded with two colours of ribbon to finish.
