Ah Summer! Tee's tag swap and some inky goods

Hi there!  Over at Tee's tag swap for June the theme is Summer.  This is the tag I made for my partner : Oliva.  I loved this image so much from my previous US post so I decided to use it again.  I grabbed a kraft/tag, some ribbons  and I printed out this quote I found somewhere (?)  "ah Summer..what power you have to make us suffer and like it.."  love that!   I sewed the ribbons any which way on the tag and the image on top.  I also  cut out the BUTTERFLY (C4C 139 challenge blog= add some butterflies to your creation)  from a scrap dp along with some inky scraps and pieces of a flower .

In keeping with "using some scraps"...I made a couple quick small cards to keep in my stash for when I need one.
Since I have been painting alot I have quite a bit of inky goodness hangin out here.  :)
Below I used some spray inks and dyes, a sun stencil (white paint) and "row faces" #6020 from Stampotique..along with "wee owl" #3041 who is cut out and popped up on the tag.   I just doodled the frame line around the tag.This fits the "Fab n Funky " challenge to "go green"= I used scraps of leftover journal papers, sequin waste to ink thru and  painted green.

Below again I sponged paint thru another Julie Balzer stencil and some sequin waste, sewed the border and put another tag on top.  I used "row faces", "Wish"#3048, "happy happy"#9007, and "good things good thoughts" #9012 all from Stampotique.
Love stamping on Kraft and saving scraps!  TFL!
