crumpled kraft suede butterflies..

well here i am with a tag i made for last weeks compendium of curiosities challenge
..and sadly with all the workmen and chaos here didnt have time to blog!
the technique can be found in tims fab book
volume two on page 41..
so here is my make :
i have never tired this technique and wow!!!
i love it..
out of respect for the crafty master all the know how is in his book...
i chose blues and browns for my colours as i love these together
 and this stuff feels amazing...
very clever and needs lots more play..
i am entering this for the following...not compendium of curiosities....
as i missed it!

have a fun and inky day!


  1. stunning tag Trace and it really does look like fun to make - love it all - those butterflies are just brilliant xx

  2. They look so gorgeous, Trace - but what I really want to do is reach out and stroke them... the texture looks amazing! Haven't got the stuff to play with for this one, but seeing it look this good is very tempting...
