What a belter !

Hello fellow crafters,

I made another tag today for the Stampotique Designer's Challenge :

Val is our hostess this week and she is challenging us to Handles, hinges, buckles, fasteners, pulls - different ways to flip, fold, fasten, open, close and grasp! These could be used on cards, dimensional projects, envelopes or altered/recycled/found objects.... faux or real - anything goes!

This is what I made:
I started with Paperartsy Fresco Finish paint in Mermaid (love this stuff, and no, they don't pay me to say that)  and then stamped the Tim Holtz butterfly on it with Versamark. I then coloured them with Pan Pastels in turqoise and doodled on them with a white gel pen. I also did some background stamping but tried to keep it really subtle. The rings were stamped with my home made o-ring stamp. I also put on some rub ons. I used and old watch strap to put Fofe on. Fofe is from Stampotique and was stamped on white paper and coloured with watercolour pencils. After glueing him on I made the sentiment with sticky back letters.
Lastly I put some black velvet ribbon through the hole.
Thanks for stopping by!
Hope you like it ........
