A quick little tag

Welcome to Gecko Galz tags of December!  I am especially fond of making tags.  I think of them as mini pieces of art!  I have a tag wall in my craft room that is just for my enjoyment!

So, here is one of many tags I will share with you this month:

I made this tag using the czarina papers and the baroquen dreams stamps.  First I die cut a manilla tag then covered it with one of the gorgeous paper from the czarina paper collection.  I can see I will be using those papers often!  Once I had the butterfly stamp printed I covered it heavily with glossy accents and left it to dry overnight.  The next morning I "cracked" the butterfly by carefully bending it.  I then inked it.  This creates a really cool antiqued look.  I matted it on a yellow ochre card stock and fussy cut.  Some velveteen leaves from Petaloo and some fall flowers along with the "so thankful" tag complete the tag.

Hope you enjoyed this quick tag.  Visit Gecko Galz to see these images and so many more!
