Heart Candy Love

Just a simple tag inspired by Tim Holtz using his Kraft Resist Paper Stash for a background, a paper punched strip and some hearts, embellished with sewing machine stitching, white Scribbles and a black fine-tip marker.

The love script is a store-bought stamp, the postage stamp frame was hand-cut. To get a chalkboard effect, I mixed white and clear embossing powders together after stamping with white pigment ink and used a white charcoal pencil to cloud the background.

  1. This is a beautiful tag! White charcoal - I didn't think of that when I was looking around for something to substitute for the white chalk I didn't have. I used Plaster of Paris powder I had on hand. :) I really like the simplicity of your tag, your choice of background and the stamp you used. It all looks right together.
