Butterfly Tags by Tracey

Hi, it's Tracey here to share two tags with you today featuring some gorgeous Really Reasonable Ribbon. It's always nice to have tags on hand and Ribbon is a must when it comes to tags!

Really Reasonable Ribbon Products:

Tips and Techniques:

Colored Seam Binding ~ I colored White Seam Binding with several colors of distress inks and dried with my heat tool while scrunched up to get this lovely wrinkled and splotchy ribbon. I inked the flower to place in the center of the bow. Really Reasonable Ribbon is now selling Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. Be sure to check out the great selection here

Stamping ~ I applied this lovely sentiment with Donna Salazar's Clearsnap Mix'd Media Inx. The corner flourishes were stamped with Distress Ink. 

Ribbon Ties ~ Here's more of the dyed Seam Binding as well as some White Wrinkled Ribbon that I dyed purple, and Cream Mesh Ribbon. I pulled them through the top of the tags and tied. I removed the clear threads in the Cream Mesh Ribbon releasing the fun wispy strands.

Crackled Butterflies ~ These Maya Road Kraft butterflies were painted with Smooch Accents, then Ranger Clear Rock Candy Crackle Paint. I let the crackle dry over night then, rubbed with Distress ink to color and highlight the cracks. 

Texture ~ I applied molding paste over some small mesh I have in my stash and when dry dabbed with ink. 

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you've been inspired to grab some really reasonable ribbon and created some beautiful tags.
