Tag It Challenge at Fitztown.

This is my inspiration tag for the tag challenge this week at Fitztown.  I just love making tags.  I pulled out my gelli plate,dies, paint, fibers, stencils and one of favourite Fitztown image, garden 16.  Here is my tag: 

The butterflies are part of a set of Morgan Fitzsimons butterfly collection.  There are 6 in the set and you can can purchase them here.  I ran the sheet of gelli print paper that I made through my printer then cut the butterflies out.  I have never printed on top of a gelli print before. I was so happy with the way they turned out that I ran several other pieces of gelli print through the printer in a variety of colours.  Now I have a stock of unique butterflies for other projects.

 I cut out the tag with a Tim Holtz's die and added a piece on the top and bottom to give some interest. The paper was a gelli print that I had made for the project. I used a stencil by Donna Downy  for the flower. To make the flower stand out I outlined it with a black Sharpie. I added some fibers from my stash to complete the card.
