Summer Tag

Hi Everyone! I hope you are having a good day. It is warming up here again so it is really feeling like summer. I want to share a summer tag I made. All of these elements on my tag remind me of summer  -- flowers, birds, butterflies, dragonflies, etc. I had fun incorporating all of these into my tag. I received my inspiration from Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2014 August tag challenge. I used Distress stains, the honeycomb and splatters stencils and the birds image from the Life's Possibilities stamp set. You can see Tim's demo here.

Around the two edges I used Surf glitter courtesy of Sparkle N Sprinkle.

Here is a closer view. I used a fun product called Inka Gold on the label and dragonfly. I rubbed the copper color onto each piece, let dry and then buffed with a paper towel. The letters are raised on the metal label, so I sanded them so that they would show up better.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope your day is filled with good things!
