Tag of February : Happy Valentine’s Day

This is my Tim Holtz inspired tag of February. It is a Valentine that I made for my husband. It is our 1st Valentine’s Day as a married couple. In a few weeks we will be celebrating out 1st anniversary.  Seems like every day I find myself more in love with him.

Tag of Feb Tim Holtz Inspired from KittyCandy Paper.com

I really enjoyed making a tag this month.   Not only because I made this for my husband but because I just had fun! Thanks for the inspiration Tim!

Below I have few detail pictures from the tag.

I freakin love you tag of feb from KittyCandy Paper.com

The love portion has been heat embosses with white distress powder.

You're the one Feb Tag KittyCandy Paper.comInstead of chalk I used perfect pearls.  If you keep reading you can see how I did this.   I ended up trying perfect pearls because I did not have any chalk.  I did put chalk on my crafty things to get list.

Here is my little experiment with Perfect Pearls.

First I heat embossed with clear embossing powder on black card stock.

Then I used a paint brush to cover the cardstock and heat embossed stamped image with perfect pearls.
