Inspiration Emporium February Challenge

Love Is In The Air ... OMG is it ever ! Prior to today we've had beautiful weather... my most favorite; blue skies with white clouds crisp air with a chilly breeze ( windy actually), so clear you can see the trees on the mountains and count the antennae on Mt. Wilson !

It's also the season for new  product ... OMG my wish list is so loooonng !! I just got cracked pistachio a week ago ... OMG ... it is soooooooo pretty I'm in love with it !  I used it on my CC3 Challenge and on this one. I had so much fun with the CC3 Challenge ... I continued to "play"... so here is my tag

 The dimensional technique is so fun, I used my movers and shapers mini butterfly die, I used both butter flies ... I put I love you paper under the butterflies... how fun is that !
For my background I used  festive berry, worn lipstick  and spun sugar distress ink, spritzed with brushed pewter distress stain. I used the bubbles stencil with cracked pistachio ... interesting color combo going on here... I also used cracked pistachio distress ink around the outside of the butterflies.
Oh and this was fun I used a stampers anonymous script stamp to stamp the butterflies.  To further embellish my tag I used the botanical remnant rubs ... way to much fun !! I finished it off by adding a cracked pistachio crinkle ribbon !

I wasn't sure about this color  combo ... but it was all about the play ... not bad  !
Well my cat is looking at me crazy ... I've got product all over his favorite spots and he's waiting for me to move it. Hope to see you again next month !



  1. I would never have thought to put those colours together but, by golly, it works beautifully! The butterflies look beautiful and the black stamping has a touch of drama about it - a really romantic tag Rea'.

  3. Hi Rea...I'm a little late in leaving a comment on your lovely tag but better late than never! :) This is such a pretty tag. I love the blended background colors. The black stamping on top of those gorgeous layers of pink really is striking. Your dimensionally cut butterflies really stand out! Thanks so much for joining us at CC3C. <3 Candy
