12 tags of 2012 - February

Hi everyone,

Earlier this week, Tim came with a brand new idea for the 12 tags. His new idea is to make a tag each month of the year instead of all 12 tags in december. I think it's a great idea, because I found it very stressful last time, although I'm glad I joined in the fun! The 12 tags of christmas was really a happening and really something to look forward to, but now we can enjoy it throughout the year! And this time the theme is Valentine!

Tim's tag

I do not have many of the supplies Tim used, so I give it a go with what I have. But I'm trying to make them as close as I can to the original. That's my method of getting the hang of the techniques. 
And with this tag I'm joing in the fun of Grungy Monday, which challenge was to make a Tim Valentine themed creation. And this challenge is sponsered by Simon Says Stamp! And also with the Simon Says Stamp Challenge, which theme is Tag it.

My tag

The cupid I have found on the Internet and I cut it out with the eCraft The little fellow is very similar to that of Tim! Unfortunately I have no honeycomb paper. And I did a different technique with aluminum foil and alcohol ink, in this case a copic marker, from the last 12 tags.

The materials used:
  • Cupid
  • Ribbon
  • Beads
  • Brads

Thank you so much for stopping by!

I agree that a tag a month is so much less stressful than 12 days in a row and at Christmas! Love your little Cupid tag! Reall is stunning!

Zo die is PRACHTIG Sandra. Heel mooi vervangen door andere materialen, dat is juist leuk vind ik! En fijn he nu iedere maand ipv 2 weken in December!
En de scharnieren zijn van Prima Marketing, behalve die grote met slotje, die weet ik niet meer waar die vandaan komt.
Groetjes Patricia

Hi Sandra, Oh I do love your Tags and yes, I bet it will be much better to do one a month rather than one a day, I really don't know how you managed before! Love that cupis and that heart looks amazing, your tags are wonderful :) Hugs, Teresa xx
