Layers of Color Flutterescent

Card1I

It is a privilege to be guest designing for Layers Of Color this month.  I will have a project each Tuesday to showcase here on my blog.



This past December I gave my daughters all a Vera Bradley travel bag with a pretty black and white design.  I wanted to start my Christmas gifts early this year so I made these luggage tags to go along with their bags for this next Christmas. I found these tags in the dollar section at Michael's Craft Store.  I took out the insert and stamped the butterflies from LOC's  Flutterescent Clear Stamp set. LOVE this set.  I colored them with copics and then re-inserted the newly stamped tags. 

The card above is the card I will give them with their tags.  I love this sentiment and thought it was perfect for a "traveling" gift.  On the card I also used the Flutterescent set and then I used LOC's Natural Flourishes Art Stencil to add a bit of color to my main panel.  Hope they enjoy these creations.
