Love

Sneaked in some time yesterday to play along with Tim's "12 Tags of 2013 - February," which fits so nicely for "Spread Some Love" at Inspiration Journal.  Obviously, I had a bit of a struggle with not having that blueprint stamp or the seasonal impressions paper, but I do love a challenge!
My Queen of Hearts is a Texture Trade, that I inked the flay side with black Archival and embossed into the rose color paper, heat seat and used my Fire Brick marker to add a little extra color to the raised areas.  For the panel behind the queen, I used my new "BLUE PRINT" embossing folder and also on the tag background, which was highlighted with Black Soot.  In place of the impressions paper, I used Tim's stamp and clear embossed and then inked over that with Black Soot. 

Again I thank you for stopping by and I am working on those blog visits.  For those who have asked, Fred my bird, is still not well and he won't recover from this. Sadly, there is not anything to do other than keeping him company day and night.  I will tell you something sadly funny, but I was sitting near his cage yesterday and started crying and that silly guy chuckled!  He still will make an attempt to flip and flop over to tear up the cage papers, which is one of those things he would do purposely to annoy me.  Pet birds develop quite the personality and the longer you have one, the more it is noticeable.  Anyway, I hope your week is going well and you are doing whatever it is that makes you happy!

Great tag Terry. Love to see people put their own slant on them. Must get round to doing mine, and January's!!
Sorry to hear about your bird. Losing a pet is hard no matter what animal it is - they are family after all.

That is one beautiful tag again Terry, love the queen on top, at first I thought you used some kind of velvet, it looks so ´fluffy´ somehow! Poor Fred... must say I loved your story about you sitting there crying nearby though... Oh yes, animals sometimes have more feelings than human beings. WIshing you all the best, Ira x
