Cupid

Let's try this again. :)  Simon Says Stamp and Show anything Goes, Fashionable Stamping Challenge - Monochromatic +1, and yeah!  Tim's 12 Tags.

I feel much better about my tag today than my card yesterday.  Yesterday's card needs something else but I couldn't think of what so I moved on. 

Tim has decided to make his 12 tags a monthly tag. Here is Tim's Tag.

Here is my tag:


I had seen this beautiful tinsel at Michael's in the spring section.  Yesterday it was on sale for 40% off and the end of the tinsel roll had this adorable cupid image on both sides. So I picked it up and brought it home and popped those images off the sides. :)

That was the inspiration for my tag.  I glimmer misted canvas tape and stamped the Verses How Do I love Thee on the tape in black ink.  I used that to form my frill around my image.  I applied the beautiful tinsel around the edge.

The background on the tag is the same Verses Rubber Stamp stamped in versamark and heat embossed using clear embossing powder.  I then sponged on Ranger Distress Inks - Victorian Velvet over the surface. I added a little watermarks with some Perfect Pearls Misting.

The Love sentiment is Memory Box.  The flourish is from Hero Arts and is stamped using Ranger Distress Inks Vintage Photo.

Thanks for stopping by!
