Spring Beauty

It is Friday and time for a new challenge at Stamping With the Dragon.  The challenge this week is Anything but a Card.  I decided to make a tag using Spring Beauty from Stamping Dragon Designs

Most of the tag is colored with distress inks.  I used a few Copics on her face and hair.  First I sponged distress ink on the tag.  Then I colored my image with copic markers.  Next I sponged distress inks around my image.  It came out darker then my tag, but I used different paper for my image then what the tag is made of.  I cut it out with Spellbinders Nestabilities Label Nine.  I layered it on the same, but I sponged Antique Linen distress ink on it.

The flower is cut out with MFT Layered Rose on paper that I used Antique Linen and Victorian Velvet distress ink to color it with.  The leaves are made with a punch from The Punch Bunch and was colored with Iced Spruce distress ink.  Here is a closeup of the flower.

The little butterflies are from the SU stamp set Papillon Potpourri and they are punched out with the coordinating punch.  I also used the distress inks to color them and then set pearls from my stash in the center.  Here is a closeup of the image.

I also used a swirl of pearls from my stash and lace from my stash.  The lace I colored with Victorian Velvet and Milled Lavender distress ink.

Distress Ink - Antique Linen, Iced Spruce, Milled Lavender, Victorian Velvet

Copic Markers - E00, E01, E11, G12, V01, V05, Y23, Y26
