Direction of your dreams

I'm still in the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge Designer Spotlight!
Woo hoo - I'm having so much fun participating in these challenges with such uberly talented ladies.

Our challenge this week is "Tag It".

Here's my tag:
I started by swiping mustard and green acrylic paint on the tag. I stamped images from the Air Travel stamp set on it. Then inked it up Tea Dye and Vintage Photo distress inks. I flicked water and dripped black spray ink on it. 

I used the Rays stencil and applied translucent embossing paste through it.
Then I happened to look up and see this butterfly from the Perspective stamp set leftover from another project and thought it woud go great on this tag. I had stamped it on deli paper and cut it out. The deli paper is similar to vellum, but a little less frosty and gives it a great translucent look.

I added a trio of washi tapes to the bottom to ground my sentiment. So the sentiment is from an old Simon Says Stamp Tim Holtz Stamptember set that was only available in September of 2015. I tried searching to see if it is available in another set and wasn't able to find anything. Sorry!

I wanted a charm to hang from the crinkle ribbon. I couldn't find anything I had that would work. So I decided to pull out some of my old jewelry-making supplies and stamped these metal rounds to say "live bravely" to dangle from the top.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you'll stop by and participate in the challenge for your chance to win $50 to the SSS store!

Gorgeous tag Amber :-) the background is fabulous and I love the butterfly, what a great idea to use deli paper! I am thinking that is the same as baking parchment or similar, whatever, I am going to look through my kitchen drawers and see what I can find! ;-)
Love your charms too, a perfect finishing touch :-)
