Love the new logo!
For this months tag, Valentines day seems to influence alot of peoples work, including mine:)
Heres how I made it
I actully used the Dylusions ink sprays to create the back ground, just one.. it was the red, and i used picket fence distress stain and tarnished brass to create speckled areas to make the background interesting
Then I stamped a few "floral" designs in black archival ink and vintage photo distress ink to add a pop to the background. When I was done with the background it looked like this:
I stamp the queen of hearts background stamp on watercolor paper and used three colors of distress markers to color them in, then, I just cut out the actual playing card part of the stamp and sat that aside.
I started making my little charm embelishment, I used one of the fragment pieces from idea-ology and painted it completly black with acrylic pain on one side then flipped it over and painted it white. i dried it with a heat tool and then sanded some of the paint off soo it looked like it was "cracked" then I used the word stickers to write the same message tim did " i heart you". lastly for the charm I applyed some dimensional magic and let it sit over night.
I own a stamp set tht includes all the suits froms a deck of cards and on a red strip of paper I stamped the suits and on a black strip of paper I colored in little messy hearts. then glued both strips to a piece of lace then glued to the bottem of the tag.
I also cut another black strip of paper and wrote valentine on it. and glued tht at the top of the tag.
Then it was time to put it all together! I glued the card down. and the valentine strip at the top and used Tims trick to make the tissue paper ribbon. worked wonderful! then i took silver gems and colored them red with alchol inks to turn them red and glued them down on the tag as well. Finally i glued a Love adage ticket down and finished with some black paper string and my charm around the middle.
Got 2 out of the 12 tags done! so excited to see all these tags when there done!
Hope your day is fantastic and filled with joy!
