Listen to your heart..it has much to say!

Hi there,
Well here I am again and  sorry it is a tag!!!..cannot help it! suddenly have a back log of things to blog!!!So over at the stamp man challenge it is favourite technique...now I found the challenge here in just choosing ONE..I mean ONE?! But here it is, my favourite ..blended spritz and flick...
I decided to add I a few other favourites and something new..I love working in monochrome despite my new found capture by the colour fairies!!! So here I have gone for monochrome and tried the fab new peacock feathers from the spring distress collection..oh my, well this is one yummy colour!!!!
I started by creating the background for the front and back of the tag using blended spritz and flick.
I then clear embossed some fab Tim butterflies using peacock feathers and painted in using my fab Tim water brush, and shaded lilac and peacock feathers...even the names are fab!
I colours the ribbon and floral trim using the same and added a little pouch to take greeting or gift card at the back of the tag and added some yes for bodies of the butterflies.
Finally I added the sentiment.

I am entering this for the following challenges:
