I feel like it has been forever since I have posted. My need for sleep caught up with me a couple of nights so I didn't craft enough to have any finished projects. But I am here now with a finished tag-Yay!
This is inspired by Tim Holtz's February 2013 tag which can be seen here. I didn't have everything so I improvised.
He uses Distress Stain for the base of the tag which I have-but not colors close together. So I had worn lipstick but nothing darker in the red family so I used a silver instead. I didn't have the cool Queen of Hearts stamp so I used this one from Great Impressions. I did try to do the same thing like Tim did. I stamped on the tag, then I restamped the kids. The boy is glued down and the girl is pop dotted. I used the distress markers on them too (I only have 5, the basic set). I love to color on the mat and pick it up with the water pen-so cool!
The hearts and Live Laugh Love Together is a Cuttlebug Embossing folder that came in a set. I used Tim Holtz Coredinations paper and it sands nicely to show the color underneath. I had Maya Arts twine that I put walnut distress ink on and tied it around the tag. The charm is from Epiphany Crafts, and I have the punch, charms and epoxy square.
The inside are Chit Chat words from the regular set. I didn't know they had a Seasonal one so I will keep my eyes out for it. I am totally addicted to typed words. LOL :)
The tissue ribbon is Tim Holtz-and what a fantastic idea that is! I will be using that idea again.
Thanks for stopping by! Until next time my friends...tag your it! :)
