Papillons Butterfly House Tag

Hello there friends and GSL fans! Ginny here with a uniquely shaped tag with  some gorgeous chippies.

 I love this house shape base and wanted to use the chipboard as a bit of architecture for the roof peak.

I'm also using chipboard in the role of foliage for my floral arrangement.
I think the antiqued effect finish really compliments this nature inspired project.
I love how the Hypericum Berries really fills in the corner and adds a little warmth and shine.
A few details added to complete this tag include a clip, some Nuvo Drops, tinsel trim, and Prills.
I selected my chippies and wiped them to to clean them to prepare for altering.
Everything gets a coat of metallic gold paint then allowed to dry.
Pearlescent paint is a bit sheer so when dabbed onto another color you can achieve a nice mottled finish.
