Tag Time!

Hi and welcome to another challenge at Fashionable Stamping and this time the theme is 'Tag Time'
We are again sponsored by Flonzcraft who are offering one lucky random winner a $20 gift certificate to spend in their online store.

I decided on a double tag, which meant I could get dark and inky on the bottom tag before embossing and highlighting with Treasure Gold.  The top tag was given a similar treatment, but not so dark, I added an extra butterfly stamped on Acetate with Stazon  to the stamped image.  The words are stamped on Vellum  (think I need to use this more often) and inked around the edged with Peacock Feathers, muslin and ribbon were also dyed.  The flowers are Tim Holtz Tattered Floral Strip, I love this die, you can use  up lots of scraps of paper for the flowers - now I know why I kept all the scraps!
My talented teamies have some fabulous inspiration so please pop over here to have a look.

This is a schedule post, and I will catch up with you soon.

I am entering this in:
  Anything but a Card - Dust it off  (leftover scraps of paper) 
  Eclectic Ellapu - Anything with Wings
  PanPastels - Tag It
  Ribbon Girls - Add a Diecut
  The Crafty Calendar - Things with Wings
