What a gorgeous winter day here in Nova Scotia...the sun is shining after three weeks of wind and rain storms, and there is now just enough snow to make it crispy underfoot. A friend and I went to Fargo Cat Designs shop this morning to pick up my new Tim Holtz "Odds & Ends" ticket stamps, and I also bought a TH Distress Ink "Spun Sugar" and a couple of Copic markers. Late christmas gift to me! LOL. Hubby took out Penny for her walk, so I headed to my craft room with a cup of tea.
Last night I was putting away my christmas paper and stamps, and getting out the valentine ones which is the next card making "holiday". I decided to use this challenge to make a valentine tag with TH Spun Sugar, Barn Door, and Brick Red inks. The directions for Scribble, Stain Distress are on page 34 of Tim's Compendium of Curiosities book. I tried to "scribble" a heart background, but once misted, it's hard to see the design- except for one small heart near the flourish on the upper right of the tag. The ticket is embossed in Detail Black EP and sponged with Spun Sugar. The lace border stamp is by KaiserCraft "Tea at Elsies". Love definition and heart are from TH "Love Struck" collection. Scraps of ribbon, lace and fibres, along with a heart locket & heart wire clip completes the tag.
Happy New Year everyone! It's lobster for us tonight at a friend's cottage on the shore. Yum!
