Wishing You a Day Sprinkled with Love!
This tag is uploaded for the February 2012 Tim Tags challenge and is also created for the February 2012 Stamp Antonio Arts Tag Swap. I first stamped and heat embossed the center heart (Hero Arts) in pewter, then colored it in with Radiant Pearls (remember those? I still love mine!) and embossed those in clear. That protected the image while I then sponged Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick ink all over the tag. I then used one of Tim's Valentine border embossing folders along the bottom of the tag (be careful--it takes work to get these straight!). I then stamped various heart images (Hero Arts) with various colors of Clearsnap fluid chalk ink onto the tag, let them sit a minute, then wiped away the excess ink. This gives a lovely muted tone to the hearts. I then die cut the Tim cupid from some pink paper and embossed with a texture fade, adding the cupid to the top of the tag. Further embellishment includes a glitter circlet for the tag hole, sprinkled sequin hearts, the Ideaology #14,a heart charm I cut off a junk jewelry bracelet, some Hug Snug seam binding I ruffled along the bottom of the tag, and a purple glittered heart. Wishing you a day sprinkled with love!
