5 for 5 Valentine's Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of our 5 for 5 Valentine's Blog Event. Today our theme is "Arrows". Each day our 5 Designers will post one Valentine Inspired Project based on a theme. Some of us are offering prizes, so be sure to visit all the links below and leave comments.

For my "Arrows" project I made a Mixed Media tag.  The tag was in my stash and already had orange on the background. I have tons of tags I used to wipe up extra spray ink and paint. On the background of the tag I used the Tim Hotlz Arrow stencil with Picked Raspberry Distress Paint. Then I outlined the arrows with an orange Distress Marker. I used the same colors on the grungeboard heart with crackle paint. The words are from Cosmo Criket and the little envelope is from DCWV.  The Key and little heart and arrow in the envelope are Tim Holtz. The trim is from Crate Paper (I think). I died the Tim Holtz ribbon using Distress Stains. I hope you got a little Valentine's Inspiration today. To get more visit each of the blogs below. We'll be posting for the next 2 days also. Thanks for stopping by!
