Whew! So much embossing (heat x 3 and dry x 2) on this project...but that's what the theme is over on the Simon Says Stamp & Show blog this week. I started out with a white mailbox from the Dollar Spot at Target and 2 tags.
The larger tag was stained with coffee grounds then had numerous stamps inked onto it using Coffee archival ink(duh!). 'Passion' is by Impression Obsession, 'Love definition' is by Objet d'art, and 'Love' is by Inkadinkado.
The smaller tag came to me as a gift and already had Wendy's heart stamp (Love To Make Art) on it in Black archival ink. I spritzed it with Raisin, Butterscotch, and Wild Plum color washes, then ran it through the Allegro embossing folder by Provocraft, then hit the highlighted areas with Walnut Stain distress ink.
Embellishing the tag is rick rack, a tune sticker, a gold music bosher, 2 gold rings (Maya Road chipboard letters that have been black heat embossed), and 2 air-dry clay pieces. The '14' was pressed into the Bingo embossing folder while the clock was pressed into the Patchwork embossing folder (both TH). They each had plenty of pigment and dye inks smeared on them in Butterscotch, Currant/Raisin and Wild Plum.
There's a play on the title...Love Notes...notes can be mailed and notes can be sung. Not only will this Valentine tag not be mailed to my sweetie, but it will definitely not be sung to him! lol
