Butterfly Tag

Over at Paper Take Weekly the theme this time is things with wings, 
so fairies, birds, butterflies, etc

I was in a mood for mixed media when i made this so fluid paints, spray paints, stamps, metal embellishments, Tando creative chipboard, - (cogs, door plate, and leaf), Inka Gold waxes, crackle paint and stencils were used on it,
I made the butterfly out of acetate, using a pen nib for the body,

Sizzix tag and bookplates die
Grunge paste, Mini art stencil - TCW
Brick stencil - TCW
Card stock,
Watercolour card
