Ooooh da budd-ah-flies…

DSC03729

Hello everyone… It’s our Independence day today and it started with a bang… thunderstorm; incredibly strong cool winds and COLD rain! Every thing on my roof, the garden chairs etc just flew away… my cats were so scared! Anyhoo, it was scary but I kinda liked the scary sounds the wind made and the cold rain…

I have a tag for you today and it is based on the PDCC colour story. This the second thing I made for my mum’s friend and it goes with the last card I posted. Her grandson saw the last card and was like “ooohhh da buddddahhflies” LOL I laughed out SO LOUD! Apparently he reads “the butterfly book” which is a kid’s guide to raising butterflies and he is raising DOOH (two) butterflies right now.

This tag has the same butterflies as the last card minus the layered scallops and wood grain texture.

The outer scallops and hand drawn and cut (you can see they are irregular). The butterflies are “coloured printouts” I just coloured over them. Everyone thought I have been colouring the butterflies from scratch… this is not the case… these are original butterfly pictures printed out…

The glitter balls and yellow self adhesive gems are from Pie Lane. The sentiment is from TradeFish Designs (the same one that I used on my last card).

I added a bit of faux stitching and lots of distressing to give it a finished look.

Alrighty, that’s it for today…  I leave you with this picture…
