February Tag

Hello!  Time for Tim's February Tag of 2016.  His tag is a beautiful Valentine's tag using a few of his fun techniques from last year's tags.  I ended up with about 8 different backgrounds and used this one to create my take on his tag.

 I played around with a variety of stencils to do my mono print and I like how the clock stencil gave a strong imprint of color.

I used the travel theme on my tag instead of Valentine's.  The background is antique linen with a mix of a gold shimmer spray.  I then inked up the stencil with Ground Expresso and misted it and placed it on my background.

I then stenciled the words with embossing paste and added Penny Copper Embossing powder.  I stamped the little boy (Artistic Outpost) using Ranger Archival Ink - Sepia.  I sponged the numbers from the stencil using ground expresso.

Have a happy Tuesday!
