12 Tags Febuary

I can not believe how fast this month has flown by, I have so much to share on here but may not get to catch up on all of it.

Anyway Tim’s Tag as always is awesome and I totally adore the chalkboard technique.

To start with I did a stained background with tea dye and a couple of other brown toned stains mine turned out a bit darker than Tims but I quite like the effect.

I do not own a heart stencil so created one using clear die packaging and some quickutz dies, a tip as it does not cut all the way through, use a craft knife to start and gentle push the rest of the die out and you will get a much smoother finish.

I followed the instructions for the rest of course putting my own spin on it.

I used DCWV Glitter Paper and traced around it with a felt tip pen to make it pop a bit more, I did also ink around the edges of the glitter paper.

And that is is for another Month my Tag of Love 🙂

12 Tags 2014 Edition

And gasp shock horror yes I know I am actually doing tags this year, though I also have an otp based on the same embossed foil tape technique as well to share in my next post.

As always  Mr Holtz’s tag is awesome.

Though my Stash has grown considerably re his products I still do not have loads of the things he used.

My Foil tape is from a roll I got off ebay, the numbers are from the ‘Say it’ stamp set I got for chrissy, (though the siloutte is one of his remenant rubz) and my pocket watch is from the x cut dies Pocket watches set 🙂

Of course I used diff quotes and chit chat words.

And some watch Parts however for the most part I used the same sorts of techniques. With the exception of the splatter and the stenciled background. My little dots are made with one of the Tim stamps I have.

Here it is My First Tag for 2014 😀

And so the journey begins for another year. You may wonder why I don’t add loads of ribbon and bits to the tops of my tags, honestly I like a clean look and it just feels a bit messy and cluttered to me to do so.
