Tag time!

Hi lovelies, hope you're all well & enjoying the weekend.
Another later than usual posting for me today, been one of those days when you never stop but don't seem to get much done....oh well, there's always tomorrow.
I have a tag to share today....I started with a blank tag then coloured columns of colour with my caran d'ache wax pastels then used a water brush to soften the edges. While it was still damp I rolled a kitchen roll over it to give a mottled, blotchy look. I stamped in black over it using a script stamp then used a clear embossing powder & heat embossed it. I added a die cut butterfly, words from Tim Holtz & lastly I added the huge bow......seam binding that I dyed black.
If anyone fancies swapping tags (cos I have way too many) just let me know....this one will be up for swap. Rightio, off for a quick cuppa then I better tidy my desk.
Thanks for calling......see you tomorrow.
