Dragons Dream TIO #128 Self Propelled Flowers

This time over at Dragons Dream Gabrielle has chosen the theme of "Self Propelled Flowers" She would like to see Butterflies, Flowers and movement of some kind on your tags.
I used a sheet of cotton paper to blend different colours of mica on to, then let it dry au natural. My favourite flowers were then stamped, cut out and shaped, they hold well on this paper. I cut the TH cage out is silver and decided to have my little butterflies in the same colour, to blend in with the lilac and pale green flowers. My tag is inked up using a mixture of Milled Lavender,  Bundled Sage and of course Black Soot Distress Inks. All put together with a little helping of the yummy tissue tape from Indigoblu. I hope you pop over and join in out challenge this time, I know so many of you are busy at this time of year, but we love to see your tags!! Don't forget to use the ingredients along with at least one real stamp on you tag. Off now to finish the little felted book that's peeping out from under my tag. Elizabeth xxx
