Lilac & Lime

Hi all, hope your Saturday is going ok, its all quiet here.  Amber has just arrived home from Nanny's and Steve is staying out most of the weekend,so just us girls and Milly bunny. I have a couple of bits and bobs to show you over the weekend.
This is a little tag I made the other day using some older Creative Expressions stamps.
I roughly inked the tag with Shabby Shutters/Dusty Concorde distress inks, then sprayed lightly with Cosmic Shimmer mica mixed with a drop of water. Then I stamped the tag and some torn lime paper,using the same inks.

I stamped the flutterby onto double sided adhesive from Claritystamp and added mica powder for a gorgeous shimmer, acetate on the other sticky side gives stability so you can bend the wings a little.
Then I added some tiny blobs of pearly glue and covered in sparkly bits!
Hope you like it, see you tomorrow for a Clarity card.


  1. Beautiful tag Maria, I love the colours and the butterfly is stunning :)

  2. It's gorgeous, love the colours and layers x

  3. That butterfly is lovely, Maria. Just one question, how much mica do you put in how much water? I have played about with that in the past, and just ended up with a blocked spray and a mess.
