This is also my take on Tim Holtz's February tag. I never copy what he does, but rather use the techniques and most of the products to create my own design. I have to confess though, I did not use the Frosted Crystal EP to create my chalkboard as Tim did. I tried. I waited to get it back in stock at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. And I tried several times but I thought it looked too chalky so I went back to the way I've always done my chalkboard style - I used white craft ink. But when the ink was dry, I did rub some chalk dust over it with my finger.
The flower was left over from my handmade flower project earlier this year. It was made with the Jumbo Tattered Florals XL die. It was a little too big for the card I made for that project, but it worked perfectly on this tag. The sentiment was stamped with white craft ink and when dry I smeared a little chalk dust over it to make it look more realistic. It was finished off with glittered On the Edge butterflies.
QUICK UPDATE: Marci asked about the leaves - they were cut with the Tattered Flowers die and stenciled with Mowed Lawn DI with the Dot Fade stencil and then clear embossed.
Thanks for taking time out of your weekend to stop by!
