Our creative muse Tim Holtz is putting a spin on his 12 Tags inspiration project this year -- he's mixing techniques from the past. This month he used the chalkboard technique and the industrious metal technique.
I have to say that I almost didn't participate, not because I don't enjoy Tim's techniques, but because just coming off all the color of Christmas, I couldn't handle all the black! So, I decided that if there can be green chalkboards, maybe there can also be red ones and went with an entirely different color for my monochromatic tag below.
I substituted red alcohol ink for the distress paint Tim used in his metal technique -- I only have three colors of distress paint at the moment and red isn't one of them. I did have the foil tape and used a heart embossing folder. I only have the mini blueprint stamps, so chose the globe. I used regular white embossing powder (don't have the frosted kind) and used a piece of chalk and my fingers to add a bit of chalky background.

Additionally, the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge this week is "Love is in the Air," and we are asked to include the color red. So, I'm submitting this tag for that challenge!
