Pearl Accents?StazOn ink in Jet BlackRecipe1.Mix gesso and the paint together to paint the tag one color. Let the tag dry.2.Place your star stencil anywhere over the painted tag. Start stamping stars within one star shape. I used two different sized star stamps, each size using a different color ink. Make sure you stamp enough stars within the stenciled star to bring out the star shape.3.Place your star stencil towards the bottom of the painted tag. Use the back side of the border stamp (to get a solid line) and stamp stripes within the stenciled star, alternating ink colors.4.Stamp a sentiment towards the bottom of the tag, overlapping the bottom stamped star.5.Tie seam binding ribbon around the middle, making the knot a little off center.6.Punch your butterfly out of the cardstock and adhere to the ribbon next to the knot with small glue dots.7.Adhere a pearl accent in the middle of the butterfly.8.Attach some seam binding ribbon through the punched hole on top.
