TIO 116 - A Symphony of Flowers

Hello, and welcome to another challenge from Dragon's Dream -tag it on.  My turn to produce a recipe this time, and I challenge you with a "symphony of flowers"

Your ingredients are: A pinch of greenery; some buttons and a butterfly or two.  You can interpret this recipe any way you like, as long as you make us a tag, use at least one real stamp and have lots of fun!  Here is my floral tag.
 I used Dylusions sprays on my tag base, various stencils and pan pastels; then stamped Wendy Vecchi's small flower from 'accents for art' set (I LOVE this set!) several times.

Then I stamped the both flowers from the same set onto Clearly for Art - I used the 'white out' version for the larger one, then coloured it with archival ink, fixing some buttons in the centre and heating it to bend the petals.  

For the smaller flower, I stamped it onto a piece of paper from one of Tim's paper stacks and stuck it to the clear, Clearly for Art and finished as for the larger flower.


 Stamped the butterflies with gold dabber paint onto black Clearly for Art and cut out and heated to shape.
 Added fibres and ribbons
and a Wendy Vecchi sentiment on a scrap of cardstock.

Do head over to DragonsDream to see what the rest of the DT have produced - there are some cracking tags!! And please join in... we'd love to see you!
