Made a Valentine's Tag, inspired by 12 Tags of 2013 - February, over at Tim Holtz's blog. I'm not sure I followed the rules, but the stamp that's used in the example is one that I don't have. And since I have spent way too much money on new supplies recently (there was an awesome arts & crafts fair here in NL not too long ago), I couldn't afford to buy the queen of hearts stamp. So I improvised!
Most of the supplies you will see here are new and bought at the fair. Now, down to business! (Scroll down to see the end result.)
|#8 Manila tag dragged through Distress Inks.|
Colors: Fired Brick, Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar.
|Distressed the sides with the distresser |
and colored them with the blending tool and Fired Brick.
|Added Script to the background with Distress Ink Fired Brick.|
|Created a label from pink card stock and punched a heart from it.|
Stamped hearts on that same card stock and cut them out.
|Colored a piece of string, because the original color|
of the string didn't fit the color scheme I was working with.
|Because I don't have stamps in the Blue Print line (yet),|
I decided to draw my own and colored it with Copic markers.
|I glued the separate elements on the tag.|
|Finally, I added a string with beads to the top.|
