April Tag

I am loving this Stampers Anonymous quote set at the moment, I think this one is just so true, don't you?

I have used lots of distress paints and colours to create the background, spritzing and smooching.  I love the distress paints as they keep their colour so perfectly and don't go muddy.
I made a butterfly in Clearly for Art, although I notice the one I finally used isn't the one in the picture, I chose one with more detail hoping it would show up more. If you haven't used this yet, I would definitely recommend a play.
I found the white distress stain to be great for stamping just that extra bit of detail.
The flowers were punched from card and metal card and the '4' at the top of the tag is from the packaging of the Tim Holtz tape ribbon - how lucky is that!
I am entering this tag into the following challenges:-
