12 tags of 2014 February

Hi everyone! Here's my version of Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2014 February. I finished it at the beginning of the month, but didn't get a chance to post until now.
I liked the embossed stencil pattern in the background, but used another stencil than Tim did. I also stamped the background with a script stamp, after inking and embossing. The embossed pattern resists the script stamping, making it look as if it is behind the harlequin pattern.

Here you can see the background better. I also stamped a small Blueprint playing card on watercolour paper and watercoloured with Distress Inks, for an extra embellishment.

A ticket was die cut from black smooth cardstock and I did Tim's chalkboard technique on top. The heart and number were die cut from grungeboard, inked and coated with Distress Glitter. Finally, I also added some cheese cloth.

Thank you for looking!!
