A Dose of Tim Holtz Inspiration

Every Tim Holtz fan knows all about his 12 tags of Christmas.  For 2012, he has decided to try something new - the Twelve Tags of 2012.  You can read all about it on Tim's blog here.

This is the tag Tim Holtz created:

This is my take on tag number one (which should be tag number two but isn't, which you know if you followed the link and read Tim's blog post!).

I know I should have cropped the photo, but it's late, and I'm tired and almost forgot to take the picture and post in the first place!!!

As you can see, I didn't use Cupid - mainly because I didn't have a Cupid, or a Cricut cartridge with a Cupid on it.  So I used this delightful image from A Child's Year cartridge instead.  I used Tags, Bags, Boxes and More to make the tag using kraft cardstock.  I grabbed a Cuttlebug embossing folder to dry emboss, then rubbed the raised image with Perfect Medium and added some Forever Red Perfect Pearls.  The "with love" sentiment on the bottom is also a Cuttlebug folder, upon which I used purple Perfect Pearls.  Not having any honeycomb paper, I used my favorite 3D technique to create the heart, added a flower in the center, some ribbon on the top and bottom.  I did ink the edges of the tag, and sand them to give them some character, but the photo doesn't show it.

Hope you like it!
