Here are my six audition pieces:
1. 50th Anniversary Printer tray

2. 16th Birthday telescoping card

Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2012 - February

12 Tags of 2012 - Feb.
Tim Holtz  has announced on his blog that he won't be doing 12 Tags of Christmas this year BUT instead will be doing a monthly tag for all of 2012 :)  Starting with February so the theme had to be Valentine's day.
Shock-horror I don't actually have the valentine die or embossing folders so I used the large text stamp from the Papillon set and text embossing folder.

Shrink plastic Cupid
 I stamped the Cupid(la Blanche stamps) on shrink plastic and coated with rock candy crackle paint after shrinking.
Honeycomb paper heart

I really like the honeycomb paper, really fun to play with, now I'm looking for other things to use it with!
