Good luck butterfly tag

Here's this:

  • Background tag was made using all kinds of stuff...I am new the gelli-printing, and this tag has multiple layers of paints and stencils and stamped-on bubble-wrap and rubbed-on gold.  I mean, the thing is thick.  (FYI, generic acrylic paint, Distress paint, probably some gesso, and some Deco Art metallic lustre.)
  • That butterfly panel was made on a Canson Mix Media paper scrap
  • Butterflies stamped with Distress Embossing Ink and heat-embossed with Recollections in black 
  • Color Bursts added with Indigo, Orange, and Burnt Orange
  • The butterfly panel was sewn on with some black floss that was already on an awl on my desk
  • Yellow flowers from Tim's 2nd wildflower set, already cut from yellow scrap
  • "Luck" cut with Tim's diecut  from a scrap of black that was on my desktop
  • The tiny "good" is from Tim's chitchat stickers
  • Vintage seam binding from my stash 
I'll share this with the following challenges:
