I didn't have a heart charm, so I created my own.  I die-cut the shrink film with Spellbinders Scallop Heart then stamped the sentiment.  Then I used the Ranger Melting Pot to shrink the image.   It took several tries to get it the way I wanted it, but I am extremely pleased.

I don't have the Tattered Florals die so I used my spiral rose quilling kit to create the roses.  I recently purchased Faber-Castell Texture Gems Ice Gel Liner and thought it would make great little dew drops on the flowers.  The leaves were stamped with the Texana Designs Leaf Cluster.

Butterflies have become my passion.  I raise many from egg to caterpillar to pupa to butterfly.  I love watching the entire life cycle and being able to release the butterflies to begin the cycle again.  In honor of that joy I used the Texana Designs butterfly as a focal image for the tissue tape resist.

I used Distress texture paste with stencils for added dimension.  Next I picked through my charms and do-dads for a metal feather accent.

I had lots of fun creating this tag of the month.  Thanks T!m
