Tim Holtz February Tag 2012

This tag was inspired by the tag Tim Holtz made for his new 12 Tags of 2012. I am entering it into the Grungy Monday 36 Challenge. I'm also entering in the Simon Says Stamp and Show - Anything Goes Challenge. You can get the materials used on this tag at www.simonsaysstamp.com.

The background was embossed in white and then covered with Distress Inks. The Distress Inks I used were Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Victorian Velvet and Festive Berries. I also used Worn Lipstick Distress Stickles & Embossing Powder on the heart. On the Cupid I used Festive Berries Distress Ink and Barn Door Stickles. I died the ribbon with Spun Sugar Distress Stain. I cut the letters out of the Seasonal Papers Pack. The velvet trim is from Crate Paper. I heated the Distress Stickles on the cupid and he got a little bumpy - but I'm doing that Tim thing of "embracing my imperfections."

For those of you who have asked about the Yahoo Group I am in called All Things Tim - just go to Yahoo and search for it and ask to be admitted into the group. You can tell them I sent you. It's just a fun place where people who love to use Tim Holtz products get together and discuss crafty things. Thanks for taking a look!
