Tag it

Good afternoon crafters.
Today I'm back to share a tag I made as GD for the team over at Tag You're it!
I was top pick a while ago, so Tracey asked if I would like to be GD for this week, so here I am and here is my take on this week's tag,

and this is my and your inspiration.

I love the colours on this and the white embossing of the seed heads. It reminded me of a walk through the fields with Max the other day, blue skies, new grass waving in the soft breeze, and butterflies skimming the tops. So that's where I went with my tag. 
I stamped the grasses in Versamark then embossed them using white ep. When cool I inked the background with DIs to get an ombre effect and over stamped the tag using the same grass stamp from Woodware in Mowed Lawn DI, it gives a bit more depth. I inked up my Kaisercraft butterfly and roses stamp and cut out the 3 butterflies and coloured them with Copics to look like the butterflies I saw on the walk, well as near as damn!
The 'thank' was stamped and embossed in white and the 'You' is die cut.

OK, that's about it. Thanks for the Tag it crew for asking me to be their GD.

I'd like to  join in the fun at -
