Valentine Tag Day #3

RoRo (my SIL and best friend) left me a comment on Tag #2... :0) - she makes me smile!

Let’s BLING right into Day #3. This one is my favorites so far -unfortunately the picture does not do it justice - the embossed definition would just not photograph well for me - bummer. I love the bling doodads (check out that dragonfly) and the brown glitter paper!

The “you” definition from SU says: “ you: the one and only; the one I value as my friend and love each day. The person in my thoughts.” I like that sappy definition!

On the tag paper I sponged the colors randomly, inking the edges with Choc Chip to give it that older look. The “you” definition was stamped on the graph acetate (isn’t that awesome stuff!!!) with Stazon and clear embossed. The collage effect on the acetate was created using a number of stamps with Stazon. Stamping on acetate is easy, you just need a steady hand and don’t push to hard or you will skid *wink* across the stuff! To make the saying stick out more I placed a scrap of pink cardstock behind it.

The tag (I pushed the #3 to the side so that you would get a better look):

My feable attempt *arrrggggg* at capturing the definition on camera - as you can see I am not a photographer:
