Tim Holtz tag for February

Hello everyone

I have been wanting to do Tim's tags for such a long time... Last night i decided to try my hand at it.

Well considering that we are always soo delayed with laying our hands on Tim's latest products here in South Africa...I had to improvise quite a bit...overall i am pleased with the end result...and YES i will be

I used white card to make my tag, didn't have fired brick distress stain so i just used my distress ink pad.

I used a stampers anonymous swirl for the background and a Paper Inspirations stamp for the main image. Coloured the rose with my Spectrum Noir pens. The heart comes from a Stampers Anonymous set as well which i die cut with a heart, stamped love in the heart in red, distressed the edge wit fired brick and black soot and added a layer of Glossy accents to the heart.

The focal image was distressed and edged with fired brick and black soot distress inks too. Heart border at the top is a strip of black card, distressed and stamped tiny hearts in white, layered wit Glossy accents and added some glitter.

A tiny brass heart from my stash finished off my tag.

Hope you have a fabulous day!

Keep it crafty....
