Flutterby Manequin Tag (Sharon Jeffs)

Flutterby Manequin Tag
by Sharon Jeffs

I think I've said before that I've never really made a lot of tags, that was until I heard a well known artist explain how she uses tags as a place to experiment with new techniques and ideas!  Since then, Ive come around to this idea and this tag was created as a result of that.

To create the background of my tag I began by die cutting it from a piece of Watercolor paper then completely wetting it with a spritzer.  Once wet, I daubed the Distress stain in the centre and held the tag up to allow the water to mix and blend the stains.  Once dry, I stamped the text sections of the Chat Noir stamp in sections of the tags.

The butterfly wings were die cut from mouldable plastic sheets that I coated with Frosted film then heated and moulded to the way I wanted them to sit before attaching them to a mannequin and then my tag!
