Some tags I have made

These are 3 tags which I have made for Hels Angels Tag Swap. The theme for this month is Paper Artsy - so we had to use Paper Artsy stamps. These are the first tags I've ever made! I hope that they are okay for the swap.

Initially I cut some cream cardstock into to 6" x 3" rectangles then cut off the corners to make the tag shape.
To get the effect for the background I rubbed distress inks onto a craft mat and spritzed them with water before dropping my tag into the inks.
I took some DCWV paper and stamped in black ink, though on one I also stamped in white acrylic paint, before using some glossy accents to highlight parts of the stamped images.
I attached a large butterfly which I had cut on my Robo and inked using Alcohol inks.
Using some gold thread I attached a small butterfly charm.
As a finishing touch I added some fibres, and outlined the tags with a gold krylon pen.

I hope you like them - any comments, good or bad, most welcome
