Playing tag at Try It On Tuesday

In case the title wasn't enough of a clue our new theme at Try It On Tuesday is 'Tags'.
The Design Team have made some really great examples and I hope you will go and take a look!

I used a kraft tag onto which I swiped on some gesso and when dry added some black ink through a stencilled little bit of stamping.
 I then mixed some collage medium with PA Fresco paint - Slate and Concrete and added it to my tag through a Stencil Girl Mini stencil.
It was then spritzed and a few sprinkles of Infusions - Black Knight added.
 Next came some stamps,AALL Autour de Mwa grunge stamps and one of Tracy Evans fabulous birds. The butterfly is a little sticker that has been fluttering around my desk for ages!
I wasn't so happy with the lack of colour so at this time added some red paint to the butterfly and the little triangles and mounted the tag onto red card
Still not happy so stamped another butterfly and the bird onto card and fussy cut them before adding them, standing the bird on some words torn from a piece of book page I had ben using for another project!
I hope you like my little tag and will be joining us with your own tag this time - the TIOT challenge runs for two weeks so you have plenty of time to join us!

Thanks for looking, Chris.
