Asters Tag

Hi friends, I have been playing with the "Delicate Asters" collection from Heartfelt Creations and I came up with this tag.  For the background paper I used the paper with a light cream and purple design, I embossed it with a embossing folder and shaded the embossed areas and edges with distress ink.
For my focal point I used one of the images from the tags sheet, I used some purple cardstock to mat it and cut the edges with scalloped scissors.
I added some elements and glitter for the centers of the flowers.
I stamped the butterfly on white cardstock with black ink and covered it with a piece of double sided tape, I then covered with ultrafine glitter.  As a final touch I used a alcohol marker and blender to add some shading.
I adhered all the layers with pop dots, also added some detail lines with glitter.
I used some dimensional adhesive on the venise lace and covered it with glitter for some extra sparkle.
For the bow I used some seam binding I hand dyed to coordinate the colors of the paper.
Thank you so much for stopping by today, hope to see you back soon.
