"Roses are Red" the dress is blue




At last I have finished my February tag for Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2013, if you have not joined in yet follow the link to find out more, there are lots of techniques and tips from Tim Holtz and some lovely tags posted each month.   Today has been a good day I have managed to get quite a lot done.  This is my second post today so here is my February tag.  I didn't have very many Timmy things but managed to find some lovely alternatives in my stash.



The tag was coloured with distress inks in berry red and fired brick and a little black soot (I didn't have the stain).  I chose a PaperArtsy Young Love stamp and stamped it in black Stazon and bleached out some of the red to add a little colour as the tag was much too red.  A piece of co-ordinate card (lucky I found a small piece in with my card bits) was embossed with the word Love and sanded then attached to the tag.  The metal tag (another lucky find in my bits box) was coloured, words added and covered with glossy accents then tied to the tag with string.  The ribbon was made with tissue paper which I stamped with words, stuck two pieces together for strength then scrunched them up, I was quite pleased with the results it does look like ribbon.

A special thanks to all you ladies who have left comments recently they are much appreciated.
