I'm Love Struck !
I've been bitten by the Grungy Monday Bug. My blog friends over at www. StudioL3.blogspot.com "host" Grungy Monday sponsored by Simon Says Stamp (www.simonsaysstamp.com). They issue a challenge every Monday using Tim Holtz techniques ( right up my alley don't you think? ). This week the challenge was to create a Tim Holtzian Valentine using at least one Tim Holtz product or technique. I can do that right ? Something old , something new, something borrowed...let's see what I'll make for you!
You know how I love my Tim toys... since Tim just introduced 12 Tags of 2012 over at his sight www.timholt.typad.com I've created a tag ( I created one for over there too! ) using Tim's valentine background and border set embossing folder and the new mover and shapers mini love struck die.
I first embossed my tag, then colored it using worn lipstick, festive berries, fired brick , spun sugar, and old paper distressing inks. I distressed the edges using the distressing tool ( you can see these techniques at the 12 tags of 2012). Next I die cut the mini cupid and a heart from the min heart die from grunge paper. I colorized cupid using fired brick distress stain and spritzed it with perfect pearls glimmer mist. I colorized the heart using worn lipstick, and spun sugar distressing inks, then using sepia aechival ink I stamped it with the music stamp and used my heat tool to dry it. I punched two additional hearts using heart punches from glitter paper then I covered them with glossy accents.
