A just because tag!

Hello lovelies! How are you? I hope you are well. We're good - the girls are at the gym again today - later on there is going to be a Peter Pan party - which will include a treasure hunt and a huge inflatable to play on in the pool - sounds good to me. I'm hoping to go for a run with my friend Rose - then i have to bake Lucy's birthday cake - she will be 9 tomorrow!

Today I want to share a tag with you - I made it just because! I wanted to play with the dragonfly die and so I did!

The tag background was made using distress inks and layering stencils -

I diecut the dragonflies in both card and packaging acetate material - I kept the wing parts of this and coloured then with alcohol inks. I kept the card body parts and coloured with distress inks.

I also added some stamping too.

I would like to enter this into the challenge over at a vintage journey.

Hope you enjoy wednesday!

Big Hugs
