Frilly and Funkie; Valentine's Day -with a twist

Was just browsing the Frilly and Funkie blog today and saw that the challenge is Valentine's Day with a twist --we are to use red,pink and white colors but no "hearts" I thought why not give it a try and this is what I came up with . I sponged my manilla tag all over with DI Worn lipstick ,spritzed with water then  used my hexagon stencil for my background sponged with DI Festive Berries and Fired Brick. I stamped some tiny love words randomly in the hexagon spaces. Cupid was stamped and embossed with clear EP . I then made a mask of the cupid so I could stamp the Love definition  over it . To finish my tag I colored Seam Binding ( which I purchased from the Funkie Junkie store quite some time ago )  by pulling it over the worn lipstick ink pad and then spritzing with water and drying with my heat tool . I added some of Tim's rose ribbon trimmings to the bottom as well as a key from my stash .

Tim's Tags 2014 --Feb.

Just a quick post to share my tag I made for Tim's tags 2014 . Again I didn't have all the stuff that Tim used so had to improvise . I made my stencil of hearts with my Cricut cart. Plantin Schoolhouse cut at 3/4in. Since I didn't have regular chaulk I embossed my verse with white EP and rubbed Stampin' Up white chaulk over it with my finger to get the chaulk board effect . The strip at  the bottom was made by embossing silver duct tape .The heart was cut from grungeboard , inked with Fired Brick DI and covered with glossey accents and then covered in red glitter. Once dry I inked the edge with Walnut DI. To finish my tag I added red ribbon and twine to the top.

Woo Hoo I made Top 3

So excited to find out that my Origami Box that I entered over at Really Reasonable Ribbon last week made the Top 3 Pick . There were so many beautiful enteries I certainly wouldn't wanted to be the one to chose.

Thanks for you and congratulations to all the other that entered.
