with a little imagination...

hey there,
well here i am again with a tag inspired by my endeavours on the fab creative chemistry 101 online course, . I combined some ideas and techniques along with some imagination to create this tag here :
I started by creating a background using lots of colours of distress inks and some rock candy stickles...The decoration came in the form of some Tim stamps, some ideaology and some clearly for art film, which I love to use to compliment all Tims goodies!!
The quote was stamped onto some card already painted with distress cracklepaint, inked the quote stamped and then clear embossed.
Finally i added a little light bulb, which I added some stash wings. the middles of the butterflies were made using ideaology spinners and the vintage ribbon as coloured using distress inks from the craft mat.
I hope this all make sense?! Was trying to keep this short and sweet, not sure I have succeeded?!

I am entering this for the following competitions:
