Jumbo Tag – Be Strong

Tag size #12 with embossed butterflies

A quick post today sharing a tag I made with Tim’s large Sizzix butterfly die and the matching embossing folder, as well as two other embossing folders (Texture Fades) for the other butterflies.  Some Distress Inks, stencils, and a bit of Ranger’s embossing paste for the words.

I have one more day in California and will be heading home tomorrow.

  6. Oh Marjie, I really love this tag! The colors are fabulous, right up my alley! “Be strong” is fitting for this tag as those bold butterflies really command and even as delicate of a creature as they are, they are bold and strong with color on this tag! Just love it! 🙂

  7. Love your tag, Marjie!!!

  8. Love the deep shading on the butterflies – and the varied embossing folders you used – very cool! Hope you’re having a brilliant CHA time, and that the workshops with France go fabulously! Love to both of you.
