March 2013 Spring Tag

I get a kick out of this Benny's tail I made out of the Tim Holtz ideology trimmings by cutting one of the flowers off! The ribbon at the top is Colored using shabby shutters and scattered straw distress stain crumpling then drying with heat tool. I then ran the #8 craft tag through water soaking top half quickly. Then crumpled it up and using heat tool dried it. Once dry I stamped various Stampers Anonymous Attic Treasures on the tag. I colored each separate butterfly using rusty hinge,peeled paint, worn lipstick and dusty concord. With this stamp I also stamped a separate piece of cardstock to cut and apply for dimension!

Next since I do not have the bunny die cut I drew a bunny shape onto My Minds Eye journey cardstock and carefully cut him out. then I used a paper distresser to make the edges a little jagged to give the appearance of fur. I then used clear rock candy to cover and allowed to dry. Once dry I applied a black gemstone for the eye and the cute little bunny tail as described earlier. I made his Bowie out if a tattered floral by folding one petal over and used platinum stickles and clear rock candy distress stickles to cover. 

I the made the Easter eggs using my Close to my Heart Happy Easter egg and using the distress ink pads rusty hinge, peeled paint and Concord grape. Then covered with clear rock candy crackle paint and allowed to dry.      
I then cut a piece of green ribbon I had into three pieces to fit bottom of tag to create the grass. I cut them 3/4 of the way down several times to create fringe effect. Then adhered to card. 

I placed a tattered flower I made for the challenge that I didn't use and applied it to the lower left corner. I attached the bunny so that he was just under the first layer of ribbon and the eggs I used 3D Sloan sticker o add depth. I then cut the journey out of The My Minds Eye cardstock and adhered a butterfly and attached just above the bunny like a word bubble. And attached remaining two butterflies! The ribbon was tied to the top of the tag and there you have it!
