Tim's 12 Tags – April

Hello! Today I have a tag I made for Tim Holtz’s 12 tags Challenge. I love the background technique that Tim showed.  Here is a picture of my background before adding my embellishments.
I am loving those new Distress Paints (thanks to my friend). I altered a piece of chipboard and used patinas on a metal bookplate. I added some twine around the bookplate and layered everything on top of a mistable tag. I used the butterflies from the pappilon stamp set. I cut & layered them on top of each other. The butterfly on the very top has been stamped on acetate.
And here is a closeup of all the layers. I hope you have a great week and thank you for stopping by. I appreciate your time and comments.
