Valentine Tim's style GM#36

This is my first entry for Grungy Monday over at StudioL3 for quite some time. Although I did have good intention each week but just never seemed to get the time to post . This week Linda is asking that we make a valentine Tim's style to celebrate Valentines Day . I decided to make a tag for the challenge . Since Tim is starting his new Tags for 2012 this month with a Valentine I though I'd follow his tech. I stamped my background with snow cap acrylic paint dabber using a variety of stamps ,dried with my heat tool and then sponged with DI worn lipstick and festive berries. I like how this color combo turned out . I then wiped over the tag with a damp towel it's amazing how this shows up the white BG images . My heart was made with the honeycomb paper by Inky Antics which I had won in a blog hop so time ago . Tim shows some cool ideas on his blog on using this honeycomb paper. The cupid was stamped on red c/s embossed with clear EP and fussy cut out . I attached a heart border down the right side using the MS heart border punch.Finished off my tag with some pearls, ribbon and key .

Also entering this in a few other challenges .

Great take on Tim's tag. I think his monthly tags are a great idea. Gives me more time so I might actually give them a try.

love your tag with cupid!

Thanks for your kind comments on my card - I'm sorry but I was too lazy to write that I have a software which I design with and then cut using the cricut - unfortunately this software is no longer available for the cricut and only for the other machines.
I think it would be great if provocraft made a steampunk style cartridge - it would be very popular I think.
