12 Tags of 2015 - February

Oh the 12 Tags of 2015 from Tim Holtz!!! They make me so happy! I know you feel the same! I just loved the shabby chic way Tim added the Distress Paint around the paper...it makes such an impact. Here is my spin on his February tag using the new Cracked Pistachio!
Is is okay to be in love with a tag?!! I am, and these photos just do not do it justice! I really love the paint technique, and wrapping the wire around the arrow...genius!
I used papers from the Wallflower Stash and Tissue Tapes for the background, and then added Picket Fence, like he did, but I added Cracked Pistachio too.
I wanted just a hint of red, so I added Festive Berries to just the edges here and there. I also colored the Crinkle Ribbon with Cracked Pistachio and Tea Dye Distress Spray Stains.

  11. Goodness! The details on this are scrumptious, Anita! First the ribbon is totally gorgeous...the perfect color match for your shabblylicious tag! Then, I love the touches of paint around the edges. It adds so much to the finished composition. And the wire wrapped arrow? Swoon! My favorite thing though has to be the stitching on the hearts....perfection! What a beauty!
