New Beginnings

Hello and happy Tuesday. It's my turn to share my Visible Image project with you today. Cast your mind back a couple of weeks when it still seemed like Summer, and we had lots of butterflies. 

I love making pages for my tag book, but it's now officially full, so this is the first page of my new tag book! 

I started by brayering a background.

Then I cut out my tags, and added some stamping. I've used
The Ripple Effect and
Universal. These stamps look beautiful covered in paint, but I did clean them afterwards,  honestly!

Then I stamped and cut out the big butterfly from Butterfly Beginnings and used it as a stencil to stamp the words from Revolution.

Added some stencilling with Portfolio pastels, and I'm ready to start with the butterflies.

These are the small butterfly from Butterfly Beginnings, and are stamped on acetate and vellum. There's also Tando board, embossing powder and bling - lots of bling!
The sentiment is from the same set and I've just stamped, embossed and sewn around it.  I've layered the butterflies up as I'd made quite a few and I didn't want to waste any!

Don't forget you can share your Visible Image projects with us in the album on our Facebook page.
You can visit the blog here for lots of inspiration, and all the goodies are in the shop.

I'm also entering this into the That's Crafty challenge, which is asking for a touch of bling.

Have a great week, and thanks very much for looking x
