Tim's twelve tags...February

Time for the second of Tim Holtz's 12 tags of 2014.   As usual, I've tried to keep faithful to the original and I think I've done an OK job.  I love that chalkboard technique!

This month, however, I'm doing a twofer.  I don't often run out and buy EVERYTHING that Tim uses on his tags (...because I already have most of it...) but this time I had to have that stamp - I love that song and that sentiment is just beautiful!  It was just perfect for my husband's Valentine (yes, I am a big soppy old thing!)

If you've been following this blog, you've probably guessed that I painted the MDF heart gold and applied Kroma crackle, which I coloured with Dylusions sprays once it was dry, then stamped the sentiment onto tissue and dolloped on some gel medium to adhere it to the base.  The rest of the embellies are bits and bobs from around the place - the picture in the heart pendant is one of our wedding photos, covered in clear UTEE.

I do hope you liked it - thank you for visiting!

Crafty hugs,

Keren
