simon says stamp - all about love.

the background was prepared using gesso, then painted using 
distress paint - festive berries and pumice stone.
tim holtz stencils - stripes and doily were used with 
festive berries and black soot respectively.

the following washi tape was added
freckled fawn - chalkboard arrow
doodlebug - hugs and kisses
tim holtz - symphony and elements

hearts cut using lawn fawn - hearts die from dictionary paper 
and black card.  after adhering black pen was used to outline 
the dictionary hearts and chalk was used on the black.

a piece of manila card prepared in the same way as the 
tag background was adhered, along with a distressed photo.
idea-ology - filmstrip ribbon, linen ribbon and leftover
