Tim's Tags February 2014

Got excited about doing Tim's Tag for February as the verse I chose really suits a certain friend. Hope she likes it!

I created my own stencil using a Spellbinders heart and a thicker piece of acrylic. I chose to place the stencil and use Tim's technique for the hearts only on the top part of the tag since the chalkboard verse covers a fair bit of the bottom. Verse stamp is by Tim Holtz " Way With Words" collection. It was an interesting technique to do the chalkboard effect!



I placed two glitter hearts, the smaller on top of the larger, at the centre bottom; a silver arrow and scalloped border (Tim's Industrious Stickers); and a silver heart locket tied with baker's twine for embellishments. I also stained seam binding ribbon with Brushed Corduroy and Aged Mahogancy distress ink for the top of the tag.

Beautiful love the verse and how you layered the hearts at the bottom. Your stencil turned out great too. I tried to cut acetate with my spellbinders but couldn't get it to work --guess it was too thick .
