Scrap Tag Take Two

I had such fun with the last tag that I created for the Use Your Scraps challenge with Tag Tuesday that I decided to make another before the fortnight was up.  Once again, the only item not to come out of my 'scrap box' was the base tag itself and the stickers.
I started as ever with a #8 manilla tag.  I glued the remaining section of my Moroccan inspired mop up sheet onto the tag using Pebeo matte gel, dried it and trimmed the excess (to see the original and the project that I used the rest of the sheet for see HERE).
I had a white card die cut using the Spellbinders Contemporary Diamonds die in my scrap die cut box and coloured it using Cosmic Shimmer Metallic Gilding Polish in Ocean Teal.
This was then glued at an angle across the tag with the squares lined up with the sides of the tag.
I also had one of the Butterflies by Tim Holtz, cut using his Bigz die out of white card, then embossed using the matching texture fades embossing folder.  This was coloured with Twisted Citron Distress Oxide, the embossing on the wings coloured and finger blended with Peacock Feathers distress crayon and the body with Picked Raspberry.  This  tied it in with some of the colours used on the mop up sheet.  The butterfly was glued on at an angle (behind the body only) and the wings elevated.
It only remained to add a couple of the Tim Holtz Clippings Stickers to finish the tag.
