Pink w/ heart and feathers
Hi all- I'm in a creative mode this weekend. As my husband and I were walking this trail with our puppies I saw a heart carved in a tree. You know you just have to smile. I really couldn't tell how old it was. You know the kind- a simple heart with initials carved in the middle. Boom the creative mood sparked so I started playing with ink and paper when we got home. If you don't have any of Tim Holtz new stencils this one is a must!! It's called Flourish (THS032) LOVE IT!!!! I will probably over use it. I pulled out the tried and true heart wings die. First I stained my tag with Picked Raspberry Distress stain. Next I used Festive Berries distress stain on the heart, then used the Wendy Vechi embossing paste with the flourish stencil on both. Seriously I loved this background!!! I didn't want to cover it up. Then I pulled out the foil tape my husband gave me. I applied it to card stock and used my new favorite die- Feathered duo die from Tim Holtz Alterations. This die comes with an embossing folder. Yep I will probably over use this also. So I cut the feathers out and embossed then painted them with Picked Fence Distress paint. Used one of the little stamps from the beautiful Botanical Sketch stamp set (Stampers Anonymous). I also pulled a few items from my stash. I think the love is from blue fern studios. All this stuff you can get at Simon Says Stamp.
