Theirs Was An Old Love

Thursday, February 11, 2016

My Tim's Tag for the month of February.  It looks nothing like his really, but that's ok!  It's where my mind and my hands took me.

He used the monoprint technique for his background and so did I with my Burlap stencil, but it's very subtle.

After choosing my picture from the Photobooth pack, it made me think of old love, vintage love, someone who's been together forever, so that's where I headed.

The heart was made with a Pocket Card and the Heart Wings die, then I folded it in half and cut it down to a smaller heart.  It's been crumpled, inked and distressed.  The little "heart" token has been partially covered with Tarnished Bronze Distress Paint and heat set to look like something old.

I dyed some seam binding with the same colors used throughout the tag...Victorian Velvet and Brushed Corduroy Distress Inks.  I've also used some Small Talk stickers like he used on his tag. And heat embossed the background in gold using the Love Struck set.

Here's Tim's tag for the month:
