12 Tags of 2014 - March

Hi everyone,

I was looking at the calendar today and realized I had better post my March tag for the Tim Holtz' 12 Tags of 2014.

It started off as a tag, which I did complete, but after I thought, "oh I have another idea". Does that happen to you? I always look at something and think what I could have done. I drive myself crazy sometimes...

You can check out the post that Tim did here:

I didn't have the new bird stamps so I decided to make a "love letter" tag

I really like the word stamp. It inspired me the think about days gone by when people used to actually write letters. No email, no text messages, just pen and paper.

Which then led me to parchment and quills and ink. I made a foam stamp from the writing desk die. You can see it in the picture above. I also made my own pen nib out of foil and wrote "love" on the backside to add dimension. These are the elements I used for the card.

Here it is all put together.

And here's the two projects side by side
Hope you enjoyed my love letter projects, thank for stopping by.
