12 Tags of 2013 - February

Hello everyone,

Today I finished my February tag. Tim made another very special and beautiful tag.

It got me thinking quite quickly because I'm not having all the supplies Tim used, actually I miss a lot of them. But that is ok. I take it as an extra challenge.

My final result

Tim used the heart queen stamp, I altered the Tim Holtz Birthday stamp to fit the Valentine theme a bit better. I didn't think that the candle did the trick.
I stamped on water colour paper and coloured it in with the distress markers and a water brush.
On the left you can see what the original stamp (CMS153 Birthday Blueprints) looks like, on the left a close-up from the tag.

To make the custom cash key, I didn't have the chitchat stickers, so I stamped one of the little stamps from the CMS100 Odds and Ends stampset by Tim Holtz. I cut out the words I wanted to use and adhered them to the red label with some gluestick before putting on the epoxy sticker.

 At the top of the tag I added some heart shaped rhinestones, they are very little and it is quit difficult to catch them on photo. The one in the middle shows it of the best.

I hope you like my version of this months tag.

Thank you for reading and have a wonderful time.
