Know In Your Heart That You Are Loved - Tim's Tags February 2015

After I made my tag yesterday, I kept on going and this time created a tag for the 12 Tags of 2015 - February.  It is a love theme, however I didn't want to use a heart or red.  I really didn't want it be for Valentines so went I with a romantic vintage theme with softer colours.  I can't wait to make another :)

I had a lot of fun using the ephemera and collaging the tag.  You should feel the texture and weight of this tag!!  I loved using the Picket Fence Distress Paint to create a shabby effect on the collage and on the metal word band and arrow.  I couldn't wait for the step when I outlined each piece with the Black Soot Distress Marker.  And of course the final touch was to spritz some Black Soot Distress Marker over the whole tag.



Notice the little number 14 on the tag?  I ended up changing my mind and adding the 5 cents instead.  The edges of the tag were sanded and so were some of the layers.  I also used some tissue tape along the edge of the tag.  I used Tumbled Glass and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks to colour a moth from the ephemera pack and then applied a coat of Glue & Seal and after that was dry I applied Distress Stickles.  It was popped up over the Industrious Sticker frame.
