butterfly over plaid

Hi Everyone: Each month to make sure I get to the craft table I pick the challenges I want to enter. I have my favorites. Tim Holtz, CC3C (which is almost over :-( ), and Simon Says Monday Challenge. This tag I made is for Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2015. I love these challenges because it allows me to see things from a different perspective. All of us are drawn to certain colors. Just look at your clothing. I love pinks. The first June tag I made had pinks and yellows. So my challenge this week for myself was to stay away from pink. Last week we were in Colorado and My daughter Kasey and I had lunch at this beautiful restaurant called Willow Creek restaurant,in Evergreen. The food was awesome, the scenery beautiful, and inside up on the walls were these gorgeous painting!!! One captured my eye. The artist painted a moose head in yellow, dark blue, and rust. I loved it!! So that is my inspiration behind this tag. . To recreate the colors I used chipped sapphire, fossilized amber and rusty hinge. I used the stripes stencil by stampers anonymous to make my plaid. And the layered butterfly die and matching texture fade. Hope you like it.

Hi Chary...this tag is so pretty. Interesting inspiration for this tag but I love the color palette! The yellow, dark blue and rust is a beautiful combination. Using the stripe stencil to create a plaid background is a very neat idea! Your layered butterfly really makes for a lovely focal point on the tag. I also wanted to thank you so much for your wonderful comments that you leave on my blog. They are much appreciated. <3 Candy
