technique tags

Over on Tim Holtz blog he's doing 12 tag of 2012 instead of christmas from now on so that means doing one tag a month instead of one a day! Yeah!  This makes it easier to participate. 
The fun part of this tag/card is using the honeycomb paper from Inky Antics Rubber Stamps which I really like playing with since this product came on the market.  What was done here was die cut a Sizzix heart from honeycomb paper.  You only use half at a time so you get two honeycomb hearts from one.  Glued heart to grunge paper heart with Tim Holtz tissue paper behind it.  On the tag stamp Stamper's Anon. diamond image with Ranger pearl paint dabber, let dry then with blending tool add three red Ranger distress inks.  buff card to remove any inks from painted diamonds.  cut out x o x from Tim Holtz idea-ology seasonal paper stash and glue to card.  die cut Sizzix alterations brackets/parentheses on the edge out of red glitter paper (found at craft store) and glue to bottom of tag card.  Doing the resist stamping with paint dabbers is one of my favorite go to techniques since I saw it on  Tim Holtz blog . 
Entering this in following challenges:
1.  Tim Holtz blog - 12 tags of 2012  tag #1
2.  Studio L3 - TH style valentine
