Got the Butterfly Blues

Hello all - I've been triple-stamping again, but this time in my comfort zone colours!
I used the gorgeous butterfly from the Flower Market set, and stamped him in Cobalt and Cornflower Blue Archival inks.
I stamped three times up the tag, and by the last one he was barely there.  But once I'd clear embossed them all, he appeared again as a shimmering ghost of a butterfly!
The sentiment is from the Quote & Quotables plate, stamped in Cobalt Archival and also clear embossed.
And I used the tiny flourish from the Serenity set to add some detailing around the edges of the tag.
There's some lacy ribbon to finish it off at the top... and if you hold it in the right light the whole thing shimmers and gleams in a very pleasing way (well, it pleases me anyway!).
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  See you soon either here or elsewhere in Craftyblogland!
