Something blue for DT piece at anything goes .

Hey there bloggers,
well it is challenge time again at anything goes, the theme is blue and another colour, so here is my piece:

I love making tags , so decided to do another tag, make sure you pop across and see all the fab DT work @ http://anythingchallenge.blogspot.com/    and for all your crafty goodies pop across to Lynne's @ http://www.craftden.co.uk/
I started with the fairytale frenzy set of Tim stamps and I do love this set.The background of the tag, was yes you have guessed split into traces two bits!!!However hard I try I cannot help myself! I started by covering the tag in tumbled glass distress ink.Once dry I added the large no stamp using darker blue DI, then stamped the butterfly in an even darker blue...sorry forgot which ones! Then I added script text printed in snowcap paint dabber. I love the way that the backgrounds build up to create a whole..if that makes sense!

The left hand side is another favourite of mine tissue wrap from Tim's district market range, which I added some patches of ink too and stamped with the butterfly.
To finish I spritzed the background with perfect pearls mist.

To complete the tag I added flourishes, mini butterflies and a large flower, all coloured with distress inks and stamped with script text, oh and spritzed! the centre of the flower is a washer and I added some handmade hat pins, just because!
hope you have all had  a happy and healthy Christmas,
thanks for stopping by
