Manly Valentine Tag

Yay me.  On track for 2013 with my February Tim Holtz tag. 


Right off, I didn't have the blueprint stamp.  I improvised the stamped background by using Tim's Sissiz sewing texture fade with the arrows and pattern markings.  I used the Gecko Galz playing card from the Game Time collage sheet.  Since I didn't need to color the card, I used my distress markers to shade in the impressions from the texture fade. 

Second game changer was I reversed the color combo in order to use my red Coredinations Heart paper.

I used a darker tag but did follow Tim's directions to paint it with distress stain.

I do a lot of fussy cutting and 3-D effect with dimensionals--so I followed along with the technique on the playing card.  I folded the hearts for a mini honeycomb effect.  I outline my images with distress marker for a finished look.

Other Materials Used:
Ranger Picket Fence distress stain
Ranger Vintage Photo distress marker
Ranger Worn Lipstick distress marker
black Sharpie
bakers' twine from stash
Tim Holtz Ideaology Vial Label
Imaginisce Washi Tape
Jo-ann's ornamental heart
Tim Holtz tissue tape

As Tim said, I'm sharing my love this month:
