"A rose by any other name ....."

What's in a name?
Butterfly, moth - all beautiful creatures in their own way.
 
What am I rambling on about you may ask.
 
Well, I decided to join in with Mrs A's current
but think I have used moths
instead of butterflies!
Maybe they're moths masquerading as butterflies!
 
Seeing as I finished this tag, I will take my chance
and enter it in the challenge anyway.
 
The current theme is 
'monochromatic'
"You are free to create your  project and butterflies
in any shades (of one colour) you like
and decorate as you wish."
 
I made my tag based on the one I made the
other day for Tim Holtz 12 tags challenge, and
that one was quite grungy - here's a little
peep at it again
(if you click on the pic you should be taken
to the post showing how I made it)

For the butterfly (moth!) challenge therefore,
I decided to go for something more feminine - PINK!
 
Here's what I used
 
 
.... and here's the finished tag
 
 
The 'butterflies' are from
PaperArtsy - 'Ancestors - Plate 1'.
The sentiment is also from
PaperArtsy - 'Clocks 4 - C4'.
The background stencil was one I've had
for ages and ages.
The bow is some old seam binding
coloured with some of the distress ink.
 
Thanks for looking - and don't worry Mrs A
if you can't accept this into your challenge,
I enjoyed making it anyway x

Looks wonderful in dusty pinks, Sherry. And I think moths are close enough :-)

Great monochrome tag! With some chic!

A beautiful tag - and I think moths can be just as beautiful as butterflies (although they can be a pain when they get in the house!). Fab work!

Your 3-D butterflies are quite amazing. The colors are just perfect as well. Is there anything more fun to create than butterflies?
