SMILE! 😊 it's a Purple Tag!

Har hatt migrene noen dager nå, så jeg lagde en enkel tag / bokmerke som mitt DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #225. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være 😊 Siden jeg er sponsor denne gangen har jeg brukt mitt eget digistempel som bakgrunn ~ whimsy doodle flower. De flotte sommerfuglene er dies fra Tim Holtz 💜

and the back ~ SMILE! 😊

Since I have had a migraine for days.. I thought I would make it easy for myself and create this quick an easy tag / bookmark as my DT project for this fortnights challenge #225. at Creative Fingers. I am sponsoring this time! So I used one of my own doodle digis ~ Whimsy doodle flower ~ as background ~ with Tim Holtz pretty butterfly dies 💜
As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations 😊

tag in detail

💜 💗 💜

Stamps/Images: Digi Doodle stamps by Tindaloo 'Whimsy Doodle Flower' digistamp.
Papers: I prefer Canson Montvale aquarelle paper (200 g/m coldpressed) for my motifs. Studio Light - Creative with chalk 'SCRAPCH01'. Panduro misc paperscraps Bazzill 'Raven' black cardstock.
Embellishments: ...
Tools: My distress tools from Ranger Ink is always in use ~ Tim Holtz® Mini Ink Round Blending Tool & the Inkssentials Ink Blending Tool and Foams.
Stencils/Embossingfolders: ...
Dies: Sizzix Tim Holtz 'Tag collection 658784', and 'Detailed butterflies mini 661802' thinlits dies.
Essentials/Adhesives: Gluedots.
High-Tack adhesive tape Sookwang Scor-Pal tape &/or Red tape. 3D foam/mosegummi. Tonic Studios Nuvo 'Midas touch' aqua shimmer brush. Hug Snug seambinding ribbon.

Techniques/Mediums: I used Tim Holtz Distress Inkpad 'Black soot' and Versafine Onyx black permanent inkpad, to distress the edges of the papers.
First though, I had simply diecut out two tags, one from aquarelle paper with the printed digistamp flower, and another tag from a designerpaper. I put them into my splatterbox along with my diecut butterflies (just using a large cardboardbox to avoid staining my clothes and tabletop) and then sprayed them with Tims Distress Spray Stain 'Picked raspberry' & 'Salavaged patina', and when dry (heatgun) added some Oxide ink Spray 'Salvaged patina' splatters as well.
The crinkled seambinding ribbon is dyed using the same sprays, and I just crumpled it with my hands while I dried it off with a heatgun ~ and now my hands are a bit stained because I forgot to glove up! 🤣
