Tag for Audrey

Here is another tag for the swap I am hosting on our Chrysalis forum. It is for Audrey & her theme is Butterflies. I had three attempts at this before I finally got the colours & design right.

I used a page from an old book which I covered in gesso and inked with Versamagic chalk ink, wheat. I then stamped on a seperate piece of card the Lilac image (papermania, wood mounted stamp) in Versamagic Chalk inks, Eggplant,Malted Mauve,Perfect Plumeria,Tea Leaves & Hint of Pesto.
As Audrey is a fan of neutral colours I tried to keep the colour minimal. I added torn scrapbook papers & lace & covered a chipboard butterfly with paper. I used a Martha Stewart punch to give the edging a bit of decoration.
If you haven't seen the latest SBK Club kit, check out my last post & follow the link. I can promise that there are some more lovely kits coming up.
Watch out for tomorrow as I will be blogging a card for my sister's birthday. Better not put it on today before she has opened it!

Love the tag, Paula - especially the soft, feminine look. Thanks for the comment (and compliment!) you left on my blog - so nice of you. I always enjoy my visits to your blog - I figured with the title mini book pixie we must have some things in common! By the way, are you a Feb or Mar Pisces? I'm a Feb one. Have a great day! Penny
