Good evening, hope everyone’s had a lovely Thursday, I’ve spent most of the day catching up & leaving comments on all the blog posts I’d missed since last Saturday.
I made my take on Tim’s tag last week, but I didn’t get time to blog about it, so tonight’s the night. You can see Tim’s gorgeous Valentine themed tag HERE & below is mine. I had virtually nothing of what Tim used & I didn’t want to make a Valentine tag, but I did want to use the PaperArtsy tall heart die.
As I said for my January take, I’m using canvas boards as my substrates this year & I painted this one with Irish Cream Fresco paint, then added Shabby Shutters distress stain. After which I promptly forgot to take photos.
I used Wendy Vecchi’s Watering Can & Cornflower Archival inks through the CWS Harlequin stencil & used Clear embossing powder over the top. I used Broken China distress glitter on the heart & edged it with Walnut Stain distress ink. The border was cut from black card with a Spellbinders die & covered with silver Treasure Gold, I left it a bit patchy in places.
When I stamped the TH quote onto the black card with Versamark I didn’t use an anti-static pad first, so there are flecks of white EP here & there, which is my nod to the chalkboard effect on Tim’s tag. I used a Permapaque white marker pen for the border. When I removed the tiny inserts from the black card after die cutting it I liked the shaped ones & decided to add them to the top of the board.
That’s it. Thanks for looking & thank you once again to Tim for the inspiration. See you next time.
