Spring Is Here!

"Spring Is Here" in my neck of the woods (or desert) and I hope you are enjoying some warm and lovely springtime weather as well! Today I am using Artistic Outpost stamps from Flower Market and Birds of A Feather for my little tag.
The tag was cut from vanilla card stock and Distress Peacock Feathers and Squeezed Lemonade were inked through the Lattice stencil. Next I inked over the entire tag with Antique Linen and shaded the edges with Vintage Photo and then distressed the edges. The little butterflies and dragonflies were stamped in Black Archival.
The frame was cut from a burlap sheet using ODBD Vintage Labels and also shaded with Vintage Photo.  The sweet little butterfly catcher, along with the butterflies were stamped in Black Archival and watercolored using the above inks as well. Her skin tone was done with Spun Sugar. The sentiment was stamped and cut apart! "Everything Goes" at Inspiration Journal, so we are going!

Thank you for stopping by for a visit today. I have been taking advantage of a little yard duty before it becomes too hot here!

What a pretty tag! Love the burlap panel frame (how you ever inked it without it falling to pieces amazes me!) and that butterfly catcher stamp is too cute. Enjoy your lovely Spring weather, it's finally sprung here in B.C. too, yay!

Hey Terry,
So glad spring has sprung there. I think it might stick around here too.
What a darling tag I love how you framed it with burlap.

Spring is in the air over here at the moment TT but the weather could do with warming up just a little more before I bare my sleeves. Just back from another Ally Pally jaunt with some new goodies in tow.

Gorgeous tag and I am sure she won't catch a butterfly.
