Valentines Tag

Hi everyone, it's Laury here!

Today, I would like to show you a tag made for the Valentine Day. I started with a blank tag and stamped the background. I glued some strips of different papers. You may use die embossed paper to add some dimension. The pink border is made with the Dark pink Zig Clean Color Real brush. The heart is drawn first with a white pen and on top with the Zig 2 way glue, before it dries up I added glitter powder.

Here is a close up to give you an idea of the shimmering effect but does not show well on the picture.

No H2O No Life

Hello dear all!

My name is kissinia
I decided to find a non-traditional approach to the Valentines Day.
What about shades of blue and some metallic accent instead of traditional pinks and reds?
 So, today I would like to share with you my Valentine's themed series of ATC.
The concept behind it is that there is no Life without Love!
There is another issue about life - Water!
So here we go!
No H2O, No Couple of essential elements = No Life!

This is what I created using

ZIG Painty Metallic
ZIG Calligraphy Metallic blue

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great Day!
