12 Tags of 2013- Feburary!

Hello again! it feels like January flew by! the superbowl has gone by and were making our way deeper and deeper into 2013!

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.

Finished look!
