Papillion - Pocket Tag

The Simon Says Stamp and Show and the Lessology challenge popped up in my reader this morning and inspired me to create a pocket tag.  The SSSS challenge is a recipe which involves wings and the Lessology challenge is Flights of Fancy.

Here is the tag:
and here is the pocket:

And here they are together: 


The best part is that all of the pieces of the tag were in my scraps file.  I pulled out the pocket already shaped folded and punched.  All I had to do was distress it and add the tissue tape. 

The next step was to pull out the die cuts (in the scrap pile) and stamp and distress them.  I had the tag in the pile which I just had to shorten up to fit in my pocket.  I stamped the flower and colored it.  The butterfly was stamped with no color so I added a touch of color using glimmer mist and watercolor pencils.

Products:  7Gypsies Tissue Tape, Verses Rubber Stamps - Flowers in Bloom - FS1119-D, Ranger Distress Inks - Vintage Photo, Ranger Archival Ink - Black, Memento - Bamboo Leaves, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist - Starfish, Hero Arts - Classic Tea Rose, Hero Arts - Design Block - Antique Flower Background , Hero Arts - Papillions, EK Success Border Punch

Have a lovely day!
