February tag

To say good bye to the Valentine’s theme I made a last tag:

The tag is my interpretation of Tim Holtz’s twenty-fifteen february tag. First I collaged some ephemera’s on my tag.

I sanded my collage then I sealed it with glue and seal. I applied a layer of picket fence paint and added some shadows with distress marker.

I added a small piece of lace to the bottom. I added a metal heart embellishment on my metal arrow embellishment that I applied on my tag. I coloured a piece of crinkle ribbon and added to my tag.

Here is a close-up on my embellishments:

Then I used Sizzix basic forms to cut a bigger and smaller heart shape from felt. I stitched my felt hearts on my tag.

I added “i heart you” from Tim Holtz’s chit chat stickers.

Hope you like my farewell communique to Valentine this year. I am sharing my tag with Tim Holtz’s 12 tags of 2015 – february. And I am adding it to Vintage Journey challenge tic-tac-toe, I chose for metal embellishments – ephemera – die cuts.
