A new adventure !

Hello fellow Crafters,

Finally I can share my great news with you. I have been invited to join the VivaLasVegaStamps! Designteam. Yay ! I am very excited about this as I think their stamps are wonderful and quirky and original ! To celebrate I made a little tag:

I think this little girl is adorable ! Anyway I started with a white tag that I die cut.  I stamped the flourish at the bottom with Versamark and white embossed it. I then used a blending tool and Distress Inks in the colours Shaded Lilac and Dusty Concord. I dripped some water over the top to get some lighter spots. 
Next the butterflies were stamped half on the edge of the tag with Archival Ink and I used a water brush to lighten the wings; as they didn't get light enough to my liking I also used a white gel pen to accentuate the lighter spots a bit more. All over the background I also stamped a script stamp with grey ink; it is very subtle..
I stamped the girl on white card stock and coloured her with Copic Markers, cut her out and adhered her to the tag. The last thing was the sentiment which I think is quite appropriate and was made using Tim Holtz Chit Chat stickers. 

I used the following stamps :

Thanks for stopping by ! 

Hope you like it and I hope I gave you some inspiration !
