Lost Coast Designs Monthly Challenge

Hello Again!!! 

I thought I'd do a quick post to share a fun tag with you that I made for the Lost Coast Designs Monthly Challenge. The theme was Love so i used the awesome fortune teller stamp holding up the Heart/Love card :-D this stamp is just so fun!! (though not a lot of fun to fussy cut out... I hate to fussy cut... but do it for the sake of art!! lol) 
How I did It: 

the tag was cut from scrap Tim Holtz Paper (the 1st pad he came out with), I used a distressing tool to distress the edges of the tag, them I use Tim Holtz Walnut stain ink on a sponge to slightly darken the edges.
The number card behind the fortune teller was given to me, but I believe it is also by Tim Holtz (TH). Below the Fortune Teller is a die cut rectangle cut with nesting dies and distressed with antique linen TH Ink. I also added some scrap lace ribbon behind him. He was colored with TH Distress Markers. I used some tiny gems and glossy accents to really pull everything together and add more depth. Lastly I dyed the seam binding ribbon using 3 colors of distress stain: Vintage photo, weathered wood, and bundled sage 


Here is a close up at an angle so you can see the layers :-D 

Thank you for stopping in to have a peek :D
