Tim's 12 Tags of 2012


Hi everyone! Just popping on late and while it's still February :D with my tag for Tim's new 12 tags of 2012. I like that it's been changed to a throughout the year challenge, no dilemma this year....tags or cards :).

So, as February is the month of love the theme is just that and I've followed as much as I can with what I have for the techniques that were shown. Spritzed ribbon yes, stamping with acrylic paint no, embossing folder yes, which I swiped over with the acrylic paint for the resist technique and I used the berry and spun sugar distress inks for the sponging part.  I made the tissue heart in a different way but it kind of gives the same effect as shown in the technique and I like how it came out. More variations are that I used key die cuts from the hardware die and movers and shapers mini key, die cut letters from the Vintage Market strip die and Magnolia lace die at the bottom. I used a pearl drop from the Ideology line which means I can enter my tag into the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge of 'an Ideology bonanza'.

Hey Chris!! Welcome aboard! Great to see your work again! :) Your Valentine tag for Tim's 12 Tags is awesome and fits the bill for our challenge as well! Very cute background. Love your dimensional heart! Very cool idea of creating your own "ball chain" on the die cut keys! And the bauble attached to the distressed ribbon looks great! Thank so much for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show! <3 Candy
