Dragon's Dream TIO # 74 - Tag it on the Side with Paint and Paper

Beautiful tag by Frankie this week as inspiration. I thought that I would have a play with a pot of Deco Art Paper Perfect that I bought for pence in Hobby Craft sale. I layered it on my tag, dried it and painted it with Eco paints using a brush cut down for stippling. My butterfly stamp is from The Stamp Barn and I coloured the butterflies with DI Broken China and Chipped Sapphire. The paper flowers are my new favourite technique for making paper flowers and these are made using Cosmo Cricket double sided papers. You just cut out a number of shapes, hold them together with a brad in the centre then sprits them really heavily. The layers are then pulled up and scrunched one by one. Thank you for taking a look, any comments are greatly appreciated.
