Stencilling with Perfect Pearls

Butterfly Tag
       Have you ever bought a craft supply which you let sit for months without touching? Haha I bet you did!!
Well Perfect Pearls is one such item which I bought and hardly ever used though it is such a lovely product!!
Stencils are so popular in crafting now that I decided to use Perfect Pearls with Stencils.
Here I sponged on a woodgrain design  using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and Carabelle Studio  Effet Bois stencil on a Poppy Stamps die cut tag.
Wood-grain Stencil and Distress Inks  
Replaced  the stencil over the design and swiped the perfect medium over it in random areas....you dont want to cover the whole design as it can become overwhelming! Brush on perfect pearls and set with a mist of Lindy's pearlescent or water. I used 2 colors and loved the effect!

A wood- grain background needs a butterfly doesn't it!!
Heat Embossing
Stamped and heat embossed a lovely Heartfelt creations butterfly and colored it with Distress Ink to add to the tag.
Heat Embossing Butterfly
 I heat embossed the "FLY" alphas in the same gold embossing powder as the butterfly and layered it on a butterfly patterned ribbon.

I used my favorite Poppy Stamps Pinpoint Main Street Tags die to quickly add a matting layer, set an eyelet and added a twine through it to complete my Butterfly Tag!
