TIO #6 - Dragonflies and Butterflies

Here is my tag for the TIO #6 Challenge Butterflies and Dragonflies. I have really enjoyed this one, the colours and thinking about the symbolism. Living by the canal, we often get Dragonflies in the garden, and this year, I have already seen more butterflies than almost the whole of last year!!

So, a wonderful collage stamp by Creative Stamping, and a great UMount corner stamp are combined for this tag. I have overstamped with various leaves and words. The backgound was made by swirling the shiny card through the distress inks and spraying with Starburst stains and Glimmer mists - it's always a source of disappointment that the glimmer and shine does not show up on the screen!! A simple purple bow completes the piece. Thanks for looking...

I'm so excited to have "found" your blogs! I've always thought I had a bit of dragon in me! I'm off to start my dragonfly and butterfly tag right away this morning!
Thanks for the inspiration
