Recycled Butterflies

Where have the last few weeks gone? I am ashamed to say that I've missed two CC2 challenges, but have kind of had a bit of a blank spell with all my inky bits and bobs.Having only managed to get as far as day 4 of Creative Chemistry so far, I thought that I could combine one of my tags from that, with this weeks challenge over at Studio L3 so wonderfully hosted by Linda.
Our remit this week is to follow the technique on page 62 of The Compendium of Curiosities Vol. 2, by Tim Holtz.
So here is my tag, combining both the techniques that Tim shows us.


I have recycled some plastic packaging to completely cover my custom stamp pad butterfly tag.


For some reason the embossing didn't take on that slightly frosted look that usually happens, perhaps it's because its incredibly humid today in a rather grey and slightly damp Wiltshire.  Still that is not going to affect  the Jubilee celebrations over the weekend, but I've got a feeling that by the time I reach Tuesday I probably will not want to see another trifle, scone or Victoria sponge for many months!
PS Have you seen Tims June tag?  It is absolutely up my street. LOVE IT.

Very, very pretty tag. Soft, subtle and beautifully coloured. I haven't even started the lessons yet - just haven't got round to it!

Love your butterflies! Great idea to combine the CC 101 with CC2. I loved the Creative Chemistry Class but have had a hard time getting to work on any Compendium Challenges at Studio3L. Maybe this will be the week.
