Tim Holtz Tag February

So it's February and inevitably the theme for Tim Holtz's tag is Love (am I getting too old and cynical?). I used barn door and fired brick DIs on the tag and splattered some water over, then distressed the edges and added some Adirondack black. The BG was stamped with a KTZ and a Stampington stamp. The queen of hearts is a stamp from the Non Sequitur plate every woman is a star. I stamped it with Adirondack red pepper and an extra body in Impress cerulean blue. The hearts were sprinkled with glitter and her face coloured with coloursoft pencils. I used some black colour core cardstock to emboss the hearts and the word love and sanded them. The charm is a CB die cut in silver card with a punched circle, computer generated text and a dome sticker. I didn't have any baker's twine so I made my own by wrapping some plain twine around a ruler and then drawing lines along it with a marker pen (I saw this idea on the net somewhere but can't remember where). The tissue tape ribbon is about the only thing that I could do according to Tim's instructions.


  1. Your not getting old and cynical just that at this time of year it is just so predictable ! and love the queen of heart now finding myself reciting the queen of hearts she made some tarts all on a summers day etc etc .......:- ) x

  2. Love your interpretation of the TH tags, always think other folks tags are a great improvement on TH anyway and yours certainly is :)

  3. Great take on Tim's tag, fabulous playing card.

  4. Fabulous tag! I love the home made Bakers Twine - brilliant idea! Must give it a try - I never have the colour I want! xx

  5. I'm more cynical and didn't even do a love theme myself - LOL - BJ


I read and value all your comments.
