New Tag -- A Tim/Wendy Combo

Take some Tim products, add a few Wendy stamps, mix together with some miscellaneous bling and a Cuttlebug embossing folder, and there you have it.....a Tim/Wendy Combo, better than a happy meal.
First I inked the tag with some spiced marmelade, then I ran it through my Big Kick in a bamboo Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I inked over the raised areas with some forest moss distress ink.
As for the butterfly (Tim's Fanciful Flight die, as if you didn't already know that).....the top layers were cut from Bermuda Bay SU cardstock (a retired color); underneath, a whole other story.  I took some patterned paper that was lying around, inked it, smeared distress stickles over it, and even sprinkled some glitter on it.  When dry I cut the bottom layers of the butterfly from it, and glued the two layers together.
The antennae are from my favorite material for this insect part, two resistors, and a bit of bling in the center covers up the mess area where the four parts meet.
As for the Wendy part....both the butterfly and the words are from one of her new sets, Botanical Art.  First I stamped the words, and covered them with a mask before stamping the butterfly in the middle.  I don't think I ever did that before and I really like the way it came out.  A little glitz around that and over the stamped butterfly, and that's my story.

Me thinks it's awesome! I don't have the fanciful flight die, but after seeing what you've done with it, I may be convinced to buy it... eventually. Great work, and....can I get fries with that??? rofl.

I like! Seeing you use all of these die-cuts makes me hungry for my first machine (ever!) in late September/October. That is, unless I turn to a life of crime and drive over to Ellison's and take one! LOL

I'm having a give-away that just started over on my blog this evening . . . just in case you're interested.

Better than a happy meal, indeed. Plus it's blue. I like blue.
Neat trick with the Wendy stamps, and I LOVE that bamboo image. Looks like I'll be like the ham-burgler and steal the idea for my butterfly tag!
