Simon Says "Distressing"

Good evening everyone! I finally got a chance to craft this evening and had a high old time getting multicoloured fingers.

I'm going to enter this tag into the current Simon Says Challenge where the theme is "Distressing".

I apologise for bringing this stamp set out again but it suits the theme so well.

If you want to see the "shiny stuff" in more detail, just click on the picture.

Here's what I used to make this tag:-

Stamp: Elusive Images "Butterfly Poppy" plate
Colouring medium: Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Brilliance ink (around edges of tag)
Tools: "Susan's" tags template, X-cut butterfly punch, Cropadile
Accessories: Eyelet, elastic thread, gem, holographic and clear embossing powder

Please excuse any typos, poor grammer or missing ingredients, I am so tired I am almost falling asleep over the keyboard!

Thank you so much for visiting. I would love it if you left a comment, I can then visit your blog in return.

Nighty night. Clare x
