My first Design team post for Visible Image

Morning everyone,  I am super excited (and nervous!) today is the day that I reveal my first project for the design team of Visible Image.  Never did I imagine I would get onto such an awesome team! 

 The month of November is all about tags so I have created the following tag:

I have started with a premade tag that I have had in my stash for a very long time.  I covered it with book and music paper and then a coat of gesso and a few areas of White Crackle Paste.  I then stamped the butterfly from the set Own Kind of Beautiful   As I wanted the stamp to be in the background I applied another coat of gesso on top.

I have then applied colour to the tag using Distress Oxide Inks - Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber.  While I had the inks on my mat I also dyed some ribbon for the top of the tag.  

While I was waiting for the paint to dry I stamped out six butterflies using the Distress Oxides. Three of these I applied dimensional magic on the top which would become my top butterflies.  

I have then sewn around the edge of the tag in straight stitch and in random areas over the top of the straight stitch with a zig zag.  I have left the ends of the cottons a little long to add texture.  I then stamped the sentiment using the Own It stamp

It was now time to put the card together.  I have layered the butterflies, putting some cotton in between and stamped some random flowers using the smallest flower in the Create It set.

I added some bling and the ribbon at the top for the final touches

Here are some close ups:
