Wings - TYI Week 48

Here is my offering for "Tag Your It" this week. The theme is Wings and as I have really overused the couple of stamps that would fit the theme I was getting bored with them and instead I went for a bit of simple cutting out. and decoupoage are not great friends possibly because there is such a lot of tat out there that simply does nothing for me. I like a touch of class don't you?

The other reason for trying the cutting out approach was because I received my free Fiskars scissors on Monday........for joining the Fiskarettes (see side bar) I had to give them a work out on something. I printed off the butterflies and a backing paper with an alphabet on which were a freebie from "The Vintage Moth" SSBFL. I also printed off three labels which were a freebie from "The Graphic Fairy" SSBFL. Then just kept cutting and the result is this.

I've now got 4 tags ready to go on cards at some point. I layered more than one image on some butterflies and added a eyelet to each. Thanks for looking.

P.S. The scissors passed the test and cut really well.
