First Wednesday in March, and we are back with a new Challenge:


I hope you agree this is showing, spring already in action :-)

A greyboard tag painted over with diluted gesso, together
with a smaller panel, which I cut the two cornear off, and made
a hole, with my Crop-A-Dile . 
The bigger tag was stenciled in left side !!
When dry, I painted very thinned Lime and White mixed paint
over both tags. 

onto a piece of white cardstock I also painted diluted lime,
and diluted Bright Pink- and after dry, stamped with the butterfly stamp,onto both.
Also a white tissue paper was painted lime, and stamped with the butterfly-
While painting the beautiful bough of greyboard , was also given details with the same
two paints, plus a green. 

And after I used the beautiful scripture stamp over right side , stamped with
Sepia Archival.  and a thinned ink was splashed over the tag , here and there !!
The butterflies were  fussy cut and laid upon each other, the tissue paper one, in the bottom .
Onto the little tag a piece of white lace was adhered, and on top the bough . The butterfly just landed in right corner . A piece of green ribbon , found in my stash ,was tied around both tag `s  holes , and on a rest of pink cardstock , I stamped with one of Lynne`s Affirmations, and smaller tag and words were adhered to the big tag.,  

Please have fun, and play with us !!

Dear Dorthe,

I love your 'Dare to dream' piece, so beautiful and the colour combinations of the pink and green is lovely and the sweet butterfly sets it off.
Do hope you are having a happy week

Oh wow Dorthe, you certainly have sprung into action with this piece! It truly has such a lovely Spring feel to it with those gorgeous green tones, off set by that lovely pink! A fantastic piece, I love it!!

A really gorgeous art tag Dorthe. The stamped and stencilled background is beautiful and your embellishments are simply stunning. The pink and green colours are so pretty too.

A real spring time show stopper Dorthe, those fresh colours make me think of the smell of freshly cut grass. So much attention to detail with your textures, lace layers and intricate painting. The way you have given the Butterfly a double set of wings gives a 3D effect as if it's about to fly off your beautiful tag. A precious Spring time masterpiece.
Warmest of Hugs Tracey xx
*Hope you had a fabulous few days away dear* xx
