Black, White, and Gold - Unity FWF

Good morning! Happy Friday - and Unity Friends with Flair time. I'm sharing a couple tags using the current January Kit of the Month - apparently I was on a gold, black, and white theme without knowing it! Here is the first one: 


I used a tag I had cut a while back with my Silhouette Cameo, and stamped the butterflies on there with some new Memento Luxe ink I had picked up and was itching to try. I let that dry really well so it wouldn't smudge, then stamped the sentiment using Delicata Gold ink and hand trimmed it to a banner. I added some white stitching with a gel pen, some gold ribbon I picked up last fall at Michaels and hadn't used yet, and added some gold sequins. Finished off with just a touch of Smooch Glitz in gold on the centers of the butterflies.


The next one is definitely a more soft and rustic feel - I had a little something I wanted to mail to my sister, so I decided to decorate it up fun! 


I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment, then heat embossed the stars with gold Zing embossing powder. I smeared some white pigment ink over it to give it a chalkboard look (*might* have overdone that a bit...oops!) - then added some Baker's twine before attaching it to my burlap bag.


I am also linking up this second tag to the Trendy Star Power Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you are having a wonderful Friday!
