Tim's August Tag of 2014

It is TAG FRIDAY (Thursday here) at A Vintage Journey and the announcement of our winner and Pinworthies! There is still time to join in the latest challenge, "Time Flies," so stop on by.

My tag is based on Tim's August Tag for 2014, but I decided to go a more feminine path and used butterflies and of course keeping with my love all grunge! Hey, a girl has to do what makes her happy, right?
I followed Tim's instructions and used a variety of stamps. Inspiration Journal's August challenge is "Anything Goes" and so this tag is going to those nice people for a visit.
After I tissue wrapped and stamped, I used the Harlequin and Speckles stencils for the texture. Once dried, I applied Distress Stains, Broken China, Peeled Paint, Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge and Weathered Wood. The leftovers were also used to dye my ribbon tie.

For my filmstrip contribution to the tag, some butterflies were cut from the Butterfly Frenzy (love the variation in size) and glued down on tissue wrap and then I applied my filmstrip using two way tape. I also cut some butterflies from tissue wrap that was applied to lightweight card stock. Some of those did not make the cut! Ha!Ha!
And I changed up the label a little with one of my butterflies.
As the label states so perfectly, ENJOY TODAY and thank you for stopping by.

Wow and more, such a lot going on. So glad you gave us all the lovely pictures. The tag looked just great with the background, stamping and inking but when you added the overlay of embellishments it just came to life.
