TODAY'S PROJECT
Here is my project(s) for today.  I used the stamps to make tags that will accompany jewelry that I made for gifts.  These were supposed to be quick gifts, and I think it took about 30 minutes for each pair of earrings. 

All tags have been sprayed with Shimmerz spritz, then inked with various chalk inks and/or paint.  The butterfly is a die cut from Silhouette.  After the tags were dry and stamped, I was surprised at how vibrant the Copic markers came through!  Especially on that heart!

To make the butterfly tag, I used the side of the FRAME stamp and used it several times, mixed with the smaller floral image.










Before you go, I wanted to share with you some of my favourite new stamps from Iron Orchid Designs and Unity:
