Since it's been cold and I don't like to be out and about in the cold weather, I have been in my craft room more here lately. And, I have been having a ball!!
This is called the "brick wall technique". I know I did not do it exactly like the was the tutorial called for it to be done, but, that's ok, as far as I'm concerned. We all have the creative freedom to put our own spin on something and I did on this tag.
A brief description of how I done mine is, I actually cut the purple tag with my Silhouette Cameo. I cut two tags and put one piece of it through my Xyron and then put the two pieces together. I love the feel of a beefy tag. I took my white card stock and used my fav "crackled" background stamp, then I stamped my rose. I used my water color pencils and colored it in. I then took a lite fuchsia ink disk and tamped it down over all of the white area. I then cut it in strips a little less than 1/2 inch. I then cut the strips in brick fashion. Being real careful not to mess up the pieces and keep them in order. Then I took my black ink disk and inked all the edges. The black was a real deep contrast, but I thought it worked really well. After it all dried, I started at the bottom and worked myself up to the top. Placing each piece and leaving a little space between each piece and each line. Then I stamped the word "love" up in the right hand corner. After that dried, I put my threads through the hole at the top and laid it in my spray box and I sprayed it with Goosebumps. I really love the looks and feel of Goosebumps. Well, there you have it, my tag. I hope you enjoyed seeing it. I certainly had a ball making it.

As I leave you tonight, I leave you with warm Valentine wishes! Did you know that God gave you and me a Valentine? It's in the verse above. Can you see our Valentine as you read the Scripture? Oh, it's there! Yes, I know you see it. Had you ever seen it before? Do you have any idea how much you and I mean to God? We mean so much to Him that He gave us a special Valentine. Jesus Christ is our Valentine! Thank you, Father, that you loved us enough to give us the very best that You had to give, Jesus Christ!
Happy Valentines Day to all of you!!! Much love and hugs, Patty
