Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014 - February

Here is my take on Tim Holtz's February tag.  I really love the background technique.  I did not have the arrow that Tim used, so I used a black plastic arrow that I inked over with silver.  The chalkboard technique is fun and I will be using that again.  Happy Valentines everyone!

My First Spoolie

Made this for a swap on 'An Altered Place'.  Now I know what to do with all those wooden spools I have!

Birthday Button Fairy

Just can't stop making those button fairies!  This one is for my niece (an absolute genius designer and artist).  I was shying away from birthday cards this year in hopes of improving my holiday efforts, but, then I went to the stamp show in Lawrenceville and came away with this lovely girl.  I had an idea of starting with a simple card and sending it off to my crafty friends to embellish.  Might be a good idea for a swap in the future.
