On the Wings of Love Tag

First off, I have to say that I had a WONDERFUL time at this year's CHA....
There were SO many great new products - Terri Sproul's Mixers - of course being my favorite!  I'm so filled with creative inspiration...that it was a little difficult deciding on a project for this week's post.  In keeping with the upcoming holiday, Valentine's Day, I created this tag.

This is where I started - at this point, I had no idea what I was going to do with the button heart.  I arranged the buttons in a heart shape, and then poured Crystal Lacquer over the entire surface, then sprinkled a tiny bit of Terri Sproul's Mixer in Silver for some shimmer.  The picture shows what it looked like after drying overnight and before trimming it to a heart shape.

I used Tim Holtz's tissue tape to form the ruffle behind the heart, which was painted with Crystal Lacquer mixed with Terri Sproul's Mixer in Lilac Pearl.  The tag was distressed with Tea Dye distress ink and I sewed patterned paper onto it.  The tag and photo image are both Tim Holtz goodies and were also distressed with distress ink.  I attached the photo with pop dots to add a little dimension.

Here's another view that shows the Red Crystal Lacquer shining on the number 14 of the tag.  Hope you all have a very Happy Valentines Day!

Till next time.....be creative!
