CCC#33 Altered Metal Alcohol Inks, and SSSandShow Stripes

Another week has gone by and the challenges over at StudioL3 are coming closer and closer to an end. Will really miss doing them and hoping that Linda will come up with something else . This week the challenge is Altered Metal alcohol inks taken from page 56 of the Compendium . I chose to make another tag using stamps from Paper Bag Studio and Tim's collection . I inked my tag with DI antique linen,weathered wood and faded jeans adding black soot around the edges. Images were stamped with Archival ink and DI walnut stain. I colored in the wings with DI mustard seed. Sorry that the crown is a little hard to make out but I stamped it with gold dabber paint. The technique is done on the butterfly which I received from my friend Sharon a long time ago and was keeping to use on something special
For details on how I did the butterfly you'll have to go to page 56 of the CC book.

I'm also entering this in Simon Says Stamp and Show some Stripes. There is stripes in the ribbon on the tag. So I think this qualifies.

Marilyn: Oh, I'm glad to see you finally got to use that dragonfly! I had forgotten I gave you some of those metal embellies LOL. The altered metal came out nice on it.
I like the boy stamp too -he's kind of funky with his wings. Another very nice tag to add to your collection.

Marilyn, this sweet tag makes my heart happy! The little butterfly boy is darling, and the sentiment couldn't be more wonderful. The altered metal dragonfly adds even more magic to this lovely work of art. I absolutely love this!
