This week with my debut project we were challenged to make a Valentine card with a tag! I started off with the stitching on the Kraft card base by just using my Tim Holtz ruler and poking a hole in every other hole in the ruler's guide. Using an embroidery needle I just ran some off white embroidering floss through. I took a dinner plate and drew a quarter of a circle to make the arch in pink and cut it out leaving the straight edge of the paper as it was. I die cut a doily, a heart, and a tag with my Cricut and adhered them on top of each other. I stamped a stamp from last month's Studio AE set on the tag and tied some Divine twine at the top of it. Then I flicked some mist paints from October Afternoon in Doily and Tattered Angels in gold by unscrewing the sprayer and flicking the tube that normally rests in the bottle. This way I got bigger dots of paint for a bolder look. I tried my best to angle them in a diagonal line ...only a few went astray! ;)
