March Butterfly Tag - 12 Tags of 2015

It's time for another tag for the 12 tags of 2015. Tim's March tag is full of bright vivid colors. Take a look at his tag:


I made several background tags testing color combinations trying to find the colors that pleased my eye the most. Here's my finished product.


The final distress paint color combinations that I used include: worn lipstick, cracked pistachio, tumbled glass, evergreen bough, and I think there is a little broken china. Goodness, there are so many combinations that look fabulous together that you just can't go wrong. As Tim says, it is creating that takes your imagination to a place where you are free to explore, imagine and discover. 


I used Tim's flourish stencil and just love the way the flourishes sway and move in the design. Broken china distress powder was sprinkled over the texture paste quickly before it dried. I was patient and let it dry for a few hours before I touched it with the heat tool since Tim told us it could bubble if we used the heat tool too soon. Aqua alcohol ink was used on the stars that are scattered across the tag. Love the mirrored stars with the aqua ink. The spinner has a combination of evergreen bough and tumbled glass distress paint. 

Thanks for all your inspiration Tim.

There you have it - Judy.
