TH 2015 February Tag

Hi all,

Hope you all are staying safe and warm. Here is Texas we got snow, yes, Snow. A lot of it where I live, about 5 inches or more.

Well I decided this year I wanted to participate in a couple of challenges throughout the year. And one of them was entering The Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2015. I missed January's Tag but I had promised myself I would do a tag for 2015 Tag for February.
My choice for joining this years 12 tags of 2015 was to become more familiar with using all of the products from TH/Ranger the new spray, learning new techniques and how to use the various charms, metals, stickers, and other products together. Incorporating all these things to make beautiful tags, cards, layouts and hopefully canvas's. :D

Well here is my tag I am entering:

Supplies Used & Instructions:
Used Manila Tag, Thrift Shop Emphemera Pack - which are adhered with Glue N'Seal to the tag and glued 2 Butterfly pieces together from the Emphemera pack to get a 3D effect. Placed tissue tape in empty spaces. 
Fussy cut the "Love Birds and leaf " from the Wall Flower Paper Pack; Placed within the frame.
Arrow & Frame - Industrious Stickers Frame & Trims;  
White picket fence dabbed around the tag, and used on the metal Word bands, Heart and Arrow; Tied the metal heart with wire around the Arrow. 
Placed Botanical Remnant Rubs - "TRUE LOVE forever"
Seedless Preserves Distress Marker used for smudge effect. 
From Stash - Metal heart and Lace; Seam Binding was dyed with Seedless Preserves, Antique Linen, and Broken China Distress Markers.
Tim has instructions on how he made his tag and all the products listed.

  8. Oh boy I have to say I ADORE this take on Tim's Feb tag! The way you've softened the edges with the Picket Fence and Seedless Preserves is wonderful and a completely different combination which (as others have said) gives the whole tag a warm glow. Gorgeous! Thank you for joining us at A Vintage Journey. Jenny x
