".......... I would like you to create a tag of any shape or dimension, on this new theme of -
Dragonflies and Butterflies
Both are deeply spiritual in significance to the Chinese, being representative of rebirth, immortality and the soul. Butterflies are often used in art to denote joy, longevity and conjugal bliss, being known as the Chinese Cupid. Dragonflies can symbolise activity, swiftness and adaptation, and our ability to transform ourselves through a spiritual awakening.
So the Dragon has dreamed the dream, and you are encouraged to show your talent and art with this theme, and to include at least one stamp... "
Interesting stuff eh? I just LOVE doing these and have been having great fun playing with old & new stamps and generally getting inky & mucky hahahahaha!!!
My butterfly doesn't show up quite as brightly as it is IRL but , tho I tried, I just couldn't get the pic better.....sorry X The butterfly stamp is by Creative Expressions which I stamped & embossed onto lilac & green parchments. Then I coloured a bit with some chalk eyes. The background stamp of diamonds is by Sir Tim using distress ink. I love the sentiment which I think should apply to us humans as well...a lot of us tend to wish time away !!! :
"The butterfly counts not the months but the moments.....and still has time enough"
Please pop over to Tag It On Challenges for a nosey. Even if you aren't interested in making tags there is some wonderful inspiriation to be had.
Thank you so much for dropping by, Hugs Karen XXXX
