Tim's February tag

My 'take' on Tim's 'February 2014' tag

Quite a 'simple' one this month!  I mainly followed Tim's techniques, but used stash that I had.  The 'trim' on the bottom is die cut lace, cut out of silver card, aged a little with Black Soot distress paint.  I first came across the 'chalkboard' technique over at Tim's Creative Chemistry 102 online class last year (the class is still available as an independent one) - I'm still practicing it, but I love this technique!  Once I'd finished, the tag was still looking a little 'bare' - I found a die cut, stamped & 'glossy accented' butterfly I'd done a while back.  Being grey, it toned in, so I added this to the tag.

Detail of the 'chalkboard'

Thought I'd just add this Valentines card, used the same 'chalkboard' technique, this time as a background, using various border stamps.  I think I might be using this idea in some more cards!

Back soon!     Kay
