Pan Pastels and Indigoblu
I made this tag to enter into the Pan Pastel Challenge and the Indigoblu Challenge. It's based loosely on the Tim Holtz 12 Tags (very loosely as I had virtually no ingredients) but fitted both my favourite Challenges perfectly.
To make the Tag I used a homemade heart stencil for the large heart and the background hearts. These were stenciled with red Pan Pastel and then blended into the background. I then stamped with Versamark into the heart an do the background, all stamps came from the Indigoblu Good Times set, then pounced with the same red Panpastel. As I wanted to use a black card for the sentiment I took a deep breath and edged the tag with Black Pan Pastel to pull it all together.
I then cut out four small hearts which I coated with Glossy Accents and red glitter.
For the sentiment I didn't have any ingredients for the blackboard effect, I therefore took some black card which I stamped with white Brilliance Ink and added dots and dashes with a white pen. As I didn't have any chalk I used White Panpastel which I thought worked extremely well. I mounted this on to white card and arranged, along with the hearts, onto the tag. I didn't have an arrow so I cut one out of silver mirri card. I then added red and black ribbon and hope you like the outcome.
