52Q - Tag 2

Q. 2 in 52Q is  -  'Am I Afraid of Change'. I had my distress inks to play with and did this tag pretty quick and simple. First I stamped a flower image from my Stampin' Up set Vintage Vogue using the Old Paper distress ink. Then using Spiced Marmalade distress ink I inked the edges.

Once the whole tag was inked with the Spiced Marmalade I added a contrasting colour, Worn Lipstick and blended it in to give a warmer affect.

Next I stamped the butterfly, All A Flutter by Stampin' Up, onto acetate which had been coloured on the reverse using alcohol inks Caramel and Pink Sherbet. The word 'change' is printed onto acetate and the rest of the wording was added using Adornit Mini Alphas which I coloured with the distress inks to co-ordinate.  The finished result:

I wanted to add a butterfly to this tag as the first thing that sprung to my mind when I read the question this week was the caterpillar changing into a butterfly. Am I afraid of change ? No not really, everything changes, embrace it! 

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. Really pretty Dee - love those butterflies, I have that stamp too.

  2. Love your tag, and using the butterfly to symbolise change is very clever.


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment I do appreciate it :)
