Well, as you can see, I went a little bit crazy with the butterflies on my September tag for Tim's 12 Tags of 2014. I couldn't help myself! I love butterflies and I love Tim's Butterfly Frenzy die. :) I followed along closely with Tim's tag and technique with one exception-I added a "charred" butterfly using Tim's effect powders so I could play along with the Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge #11. I needed this tag to "kill two birds with one stone" and I love how my charred butterfly looks as well as the pretty butterflies created with alcohol inks.
A few close ups.
This tag reflects Tim's new spin on the Faded Layers technique which you can find on pg. 58 of Tim's newest Compendium of Curiosities book.

I used two shades each of red, yellow, orange, green, blue and purple alcohol inks to achieve my colors. I love the visual interest the text stamp adds.
Challenge 11-Effect Powders-is the current challenge at Compendium of Curiosities 3.
My butterfly was die cut from grunge paper and I used black soot embossing powder to achieve my charred look.
(Sorry, can't share the technique but you'll find it on pg. 52 of CC3)
Following Tim's technique for the September tag I dabbed alcohol blending solution over the schoolhouse layering stencil on my glossy paper, run it through a puddle of citrus alcohol ink and let it dry.
Here's a close up of the faded layers effect-
I love the depth it adds!
The pretty lady is from Tim's Nature Walk set and was stamped with jet black archival ink. Per his instructions I added remnant rub ons from the Botanical set and matted my glossy paper to my black tag.
