Butterfly Tag

So here is a tag a recently made. I was playing around with different stuff that I haven't used in a while.
I took Tim Holtz's ink and inked the outer parts and blended inward. I haven't used embossing ink and powder in a while. So I used my bright red with gold flakes embossing powder and made the big flowers. I believe the stamp is from Making Memories but I am not sure.
Next I took tin foil and used alcohol inks to color it. Then I used my cuttlebug to to cut out the butterfly and emboss it.
I added the little roses and the fancy red fibers to finish off my project.
I hope everyone likes.
