最近好像特別愛用H2O和這個背景章，感覺和什麼題材都很match。參加 MHC 魔力手作挑戰 #2 -- 閃亮亮 ，這次再利用Twinkling H2O，Hero Arts的Everything Flower草皮章和黑色燙凸粉做閃亮背景，上加紅色雙面皺紋紙剪個心型，但感覺有點暗，就加上水晶膠讓❤️也有亮度。最後在底部加紅色皺紋紙以及白色壓凸心型卡紙就完成了。希望在新的一年裡，能夠以一顆熱誠的心面對所有的人事物 , 也希望新的一年像背景一樣閃亮精彩。
Happy Chinese Lunar New Year~ It is just around the corner. Say goodbye to the year of the horse and welcome the year of the Ram. I have created a card to celebrate the new year. It might not have any animal in this card but it includes my wishes to all my friends and families. I wish everyone a joyful, healthy, prosperous and happiest new year ahead! ^^
I guess beside wishes, I will share with you some of the steps on this creation.
Everyone loves bling bling stuff. Especially during New Year celebration, we decorate everything bright and sparkle. I think Perfect pearl from Ranger can take on this job. Stamping Versamark ink on the black cardstock and using small brush to pick up some, not too much, a tiny dab of powder goes a long way, gently brush it on the section you want the color to be. I choose rainbow in this case. Can't go wrong with it. ^^
I also decide to include a flower. Peony is very popular in Chinese painting. It is the traditional floral symbol of China, the state flower of Indiana, and the 12th wedding anniversary flower, with their lush, full, rounded bloom, peonies embody romance and prosperity and are regarded as an omen of good fortune and a happy marriage. I did a wet embossing with gold embossing powder. Then apply another bling bling goodie-Twinkling H2O watercolor. It is so hard to show the shimmer on the picture, wish you can see it too.
The rest is assembling. At the last minuet, I remember an embossed folder from Anna Griffin that I bought last year, the pattern somehow similar to Chinese motif. I decide to dry embossing it as my red background. Even though it is in Anna Griffin's Christmas collection, it actually match the scene very well. How funny isn't it?

I really like the collage design with vintage look that Tim has created for February. Since it is February, it is all about LOVE. To see Tim's February Tag tutorial, you can click on the image below.
I want to share with you my take on the 12 Tags of 2015-February. I don't really have all the embellishments for this project, but I am very happy that I get a chance to use some of the ephemera that I collect over the years. ^^
Beside posting my tag for 12 Tags of 2015-February, I am also entering my "Key to My Heart" tag into Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog H is for... Obviously, H is for key to my "H"eart.
To begin, I start looking into my bit and stash boxes where I have collected things from everywhere. The square frame is a vintage slide frame that I found in an art thrift shop. Some postcards, business cards, bookmarks, washi tapes, and poker cards were used in this project. Don't forget to check out his amazing February creation on Timholtz.com. It is always fun to follow Tim's Tag tutorial. Thank you Tim!^^
It's getting there.^^
Here are some pictures of the details.
I hope you all will enjoy and love this tag just as much as I have enjoyed and loved creating it.
Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great day. Happy Valentines and see you soon~
