Imagine...another ...tag!

Hi there,
So the sun is still shining, which must be a record!!!and today, here is a tag!!!

This time over at dragons dream tag it on, the challenge is a tag, with a splash of green, buttons and a butterfly or two...now I had no problem with the green and butterflies, but buttons..boy I did struggle!
So I made an inky background with distress stains , added some Tim stamping for the flourishes and added some distress stickles.
The flowers were Wendy vecchi ones, cannot remember which set sorry! These were painted with wild honey DI and the tricky buttons added.
The butterflies were made by gluing tissue wrap to clearly for art..the clear flavour as quoted from Hels!! then the images were coloured with distress markers, and heated and shaped!
The ribbon was coloured with wild honey, to link in with flowers. I am not very good with recipes, in or out of the kitchen, as my family will tell you...cooking is not ME!!!! But, i am fairly pleased with this tag.
I am entering this for the following competitions:
a symphony of flowers, recipe @ http://dragon-dragonsdream.blogspot.co.uk/

thanks for stopping by, i love your visits and comments!!makes me smile!
have a fab, fun and inky day!!
