A Messy Spring Tag

Well today is the first day that we have heard Frogs Singing,
SOOOO, It Must Be Spring!!
    Plus the Blue Birds are back, (that’s a good thing.)

For my tag, thought I would try something (very) different for me,
Looks like a mess, but I’m into that Messy Mood.
Using a Large Manila (8 inches) tag, I did a TH thing with DI on my resist sheet, alittle H2o and dragged the poor little tag all over it.   Sponged on some more DI’s, Stamped some images, then smeared on Gesso, which I cut a Spellbinders die and pressed it into the wet Gesso.

Then I used embossing paste and another die cut for the butterfly.
Just before it dried I stamped a butterfly image into the wet embossing paste. 
Added some Gold paint to the wings.
Boy it feels so good to get messy again.
Hope you enjoy the tag, thanks for stopping in today.
Hugs Vada
