Tim's blog he has just released his new take on the 12 tags of Christmas...it is now the 12 tags of 2012 instead and he is retiring the Christmas ones. I am sure he is relieved that he won't have to be rushing off to the nearest parking lot or hotel where he can get internet coverage in the heavy snow!
Anyway, I digress.
Here is the tag I have made in honour of Valentines day today and the 1st tag of 2012. I have decided to enter this into Linda's Grungy Monday Challenge which is "Valentines day - Tim Holtz Style" Cant get more Timmy than this...and I am entering this into the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge where "anything goes" They are also sponsoring a Voucher as a prize at Grungy Monday from their online shop here
I used the December embossing folder for the top, rubbed the whole tag with Festive Berries Distress ink and some Black Soot on the edges and just the number 14 as well as the die cut edge at the bottom of the tag. I then stamped the sentiment and the flourish with Archival jet black ink, attached the heart lock, key and door number with brads. I did not have that fancy honeycomb paper that Tim used but did find some straws with fruit on them in the same stuff and took an apple and changed it into a heart! Such a cool find. I will show more of them tomorrow on my desk for Whats On My Workdesk Wednesday...
Hope you have had a great Valentines day.
