My New Stamps - Tim Holtz - Papillon

I've loved these stamps since I first saw them but it's taken me this long to get them.  This card idea comes from one of my favourite magazines, Craft Stamper, with a few small changes.

Fanciful Flight

I got my fanciful flight die and thought I'd give it a test run with this card, I also added in a bit of distress painting on a tag for backing.  I do love this die and cut with the coredinations card allows for a little extra distressing.

What I used

Fanciful Flight Die
Paper Rosette Die
Tag and Bookplate Die

Plain Dark Brown Card stock 250gsm+ ( For Main Card)
Happily Ever After Mat Stack (For Layering)

1 Tim Holtz Metal Tag

Antique Wood Acrylic Paint
