Shimmery Flutter Tag Tutorial

Hi friends! We had another day of lovely weather here today, but rain is needed soon, since it is a little dry. I have a tutorial on the Sizzix blog, for a very shiny and shimmery butterfly tag, using a whole bunch of techniques.

Layers of ink - Shimmery Butterfly Tag Tutorial by Anna-Karin with Tim Holtz Sizzix Flutter collection.

Butterflies make me happy and they are such fun to color. Here I used Tim Holtz's Flutter stamps and the coordinating Framelits dies. There is Distress Ink, Mica Spray, Brite-Ons paper, and a textured mixed media background which also glimmers. I wish you could see this tag in real life, because all the different pearlescent effects together with the various textures, look pretty nice.

You will find the full tutorial and close-ups on the Sizzix blog, Shimmery Butterfly Tag.

Have you seen that there is Share with Sizzix challenge going on until 6th August. All you need to do is to use something from the Flutter collection and hashtag your project with #sharewithsizzix. You can read more about the challenge here.

Thank you for stopping by today!
