February Tag

I unfortunately missed out on Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas and so I am really excited that he is now doing 12 Tags of 2012. You can see Tim's Tag here.

Here is my interpretation using the supplies that I had on hand.

I did not have any honeycomb paper for my heart so i made my own dimension heart. You can see this in more detail here.

I also did not have the cupid die so I improvised here too. I made the tag for a wonderful friend who just loves here long grey haired cat. I found this cute vintage cat Valentine on line and thought it was perfect for the tag. I added the Symphony Tissue Tape to the top of it, inked the edges using Vintage Photo Distress Ink, and added some sparkle to the heart using Barn Door Distress Stickles.

I have entered the tag in a few challenges and they are:
My Mojo Monthly February - Heartstrings  Sarah has a wonderful sight so spend some time exploring. You are sure to find some inspiration here.
Put a Heart In it At Inspiration Emporium you will find a  great group of artists that have some beautiful pieces.
Grungy Monday 36 Who Loves Ya, Baby? Linda has again come up with another fantastic Grungy Monday Challenge. Take a look at the Tim Style Valentine she has created. You could win a gift certificate to

Supplies used: Dies: Vintage Lace, Tattered Banners, and Heart Wings; Distress Inks: Fired Brick, Barn Door, and Vintage Photo; Distress Stains: Barn Door and Fired Brick; Shabby French Stamp Collection, Tim Holtz Idea-ology Trimmings Lavish Ribbon, and Adirondack Pearl Paint Dabber
