I used Now and Always AGAIN. Yeah. Third time in a week. What can I say- I like the set and it's kinda fun to see how many different ways I can use it in. ... oh wait! You won't see one use of it until Friday! And it's a good one if I do say so myself- stay tuned!
In short, I stamped the large flower in white and embossed it. I then took the distress inks, tapped them on a craft mat, spritzed them with water and then rubbed the tag in it. I repeated this get the look I wanted. I stamped the 2nd flower on top of that, and the butterfly and vine on DP. I fussy cut those, glossy glazed the vine, paper pieced the leaves on it with some other DP, and then glued the vine only through the hole so it's almost like a ribbon, and the butterflies on top/around the vine.
I really like the way the shadows from the white riboon and the vine play on the tag. I included photos so that was a bit more visible- the ribbons in the 2nd photo, the vine in the 3rd.
