I made this tag for the June challenge of Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014.
I didn't have his butterfly stamp set - but I do have the same butterflies in sticker form from the Salvage Stickers/Crowded Attic.
I used the Harlequin stencil with Ranger Distress colors of Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Peacock Feathers and Picked Raspberry mini ink pads. The technique Tim showed us was to ink the back of the stencil with multi-colors, spritz with water, then press it onto a watercolor card stock panel, blotting with a paper towel as we pressed the stencil against the panel to absorb the excess watery ink.
I love how pretty the Crinkle ribbon came out inking it with the same colors as the Harlequin background. I added some sprocket gears and a game spinner to the top corner and some Remnant Rubs/Botanicals above each butterfly.
