Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2016 June, Jane's Journal's card version

We're half way through the year now with Tim's tags and for the June version he shared another 2 fun techniques which he mixed up together.
This is his tag.

As usual I have none of the dies he used so I decided that my card  version would be very summery and I got out my dragonfly bigz die with its texture folder.

I only have 1 piece of material...a win a long time again so it was Hobson's Choice what I would use.

I stamped my background with lots of lovely butterflies

 then added the tissue with some vintage matt medium. I really like this product.

I used my bark stencil to create a pattern in inks on my material.


I cut out my dragonfly and if you would like to see what I did with him take a look at my Tintinnabulation post here...

I stamped and coloured some VI butterflies and then put everything together.

Here is my finished card.

I added some faux sewing as my machine is back in the loft.

and added some wildflower die cuts using some snippets of inked card.

I would like to enter my card version of Tim's June tag into the following challenges;

  1. Pretty card! I'm enjoying seeing the effects your camera gives you. I do hope you'll be showing us the pig pictures! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  2. I love the use of fabric Jane, that is clever and it looks great.
    Showery here this weekend too and I'm afraid the week hasn't started off that brilliantly either. :(
    Come on sun...where are you!
    Have a lovely week my friend,

  3. Gorgeous creation and lovely photo's Jane. xxx

  4. Gorgeous aperture of the butterfly but does this mean you have none of the blue denim left! Just saying. Your photos of your garden look great in all the different shades. The black/white and the sepia make it look very 1950's. Love the effects your getting. Thank you for fluttering by again. Hugs Mrs A.

  5. Such a wonderful creation Jane! The fabric looks amazing! Thank you for sharing with us at the Ribbon Girl, good luck and I hope you will join us again.
