Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2013-My February Tag

Tim Feb Tag 1 w border

Even though I already made a tag using the Queen of Hearts as a Valentine symbol, that tag (using the King and the Queen of Hearts cards) was off the top of my head and nothing at all like Tim’s February 2013 tag, except that both tags use the image of the Queen. So, the “real” Tim Holtz February tag is this one.

Again, I do not own the darling blueprint stamp of the Queen of Hearts, so I once again used the actual playing card. I did cut out the Queen from a second deck and popped her up on top of the first card. In retrospect, I should have double-popped her, as the dimension is not visible from the frontal view.

In fact, I “winged it” on several aspects of the card, but since Tim encourages that, I can still claim it as the 2013 February tag (MY take on it!).

I am linking this project to Anything But a Card Share the Love Challenge. Also linking to Simon Says Anything Goes.
