Calendar Challenge Week 7

This week, the challenge for the Craft Barn Calendar Challenge was to use purple/lilac and dry embossing.

For the tag this week, I used a craft concepts emboissing folder on the tag then coloured it with milled lavender and dusty concord distress inks.

The butterfly is a die cut from Marianne Creations and was cut from a heavy silver paper. I bent the wings up a little and added purple rhinestones to the centre for the body.

I cut the flourishes from silver card using the elegant flourishes die from Tim Holtz. The ribbon was coloured using the dusty concord distress ink.

Only 5 more to go!

When I have finished the 12 tags, I plan to mount them on a canvas as a calendar for 2012!
