Fanciful Flight

Hello peeps!

Hope everyone's week is off to a great start!  I have a quick post to share a tag that I made with some of my new Lindy's Stamp Gang sparkly sprays and some amazingly beautiful Cheery Lynn Designs dies.  These products are so gorgeous, the end result is pretty much guaranteed.  I love how this tag turned out:

The beauty of Lindy's Stamp Gang products is their two tone colour and amazing sparkle.  The soft blue butterflies look silver when the light hits them just right.  Here is a shot showing some of the gorgeous shimmer:


Supplies:

Cheery Lynn Designs dies - Fanciful flourish, trimmed a bit to fit the tag and small Exotic Butterflies
Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays - Starbursts in Silent Night Silver for the background and Frosted Forget-Me-Nots for the butterflies.  Glitz Spritz in Scintillating Silver for the flourish.  All were applied with a brush or dauber, not sprayed.  These colours are available as a 'Try me kit' and they are so beautiful together.
Stamp - Stampin' Up - En Francais background stamp, embossed with clear embossing powder to create a resist
Other - tag cut with Sentimentals Cricut cartridge, some pearls on the butterflies, and the ribbon was recycled.  It was part of the packaging from the Lindy's Stamp Gang Try me kit.

This tag was inspired by the following challenges:

Cheery Lynn Designs - Make a tag.  This is their first of a new weekly challenge, with a great prize up for grabs, so be sure to check them out!

Hugs,
Dawn
