Heart and Soul

Frankie must be  all loved up following her and the lucky Fred's Handfasting as he challenge this week at Dragons Dream Tag It on is 'Heart and Soul'. For this romantic challenge i've made this tag

I've used a Tim Holtz music stamp embossed in silver ep for the background. The couple are stamps from Joanna Sheen stamped on grey card and embossed with Black Magic EP. I've triple embossed a grungeboard heart with silver EP and heated it to bubble to try and get a metal effect (got to say I quite like it lol). The flowers were going to be made out of grungepaper but I got a roll of canvas from the Works (a proper bargain at £1.99 for 2m!!!!) so I had a go  with that instead. I  coloured the canvas with brilliance inks in rocket red, pearescent poppy and crimson and once it was dry stamped it with 2 sizes of Elusive images flower stamps before cutting them up and making the roses (there's a great tutorial over at Gingernsnap Creations if you want to have a look)
I added some eyelets and a black ric-rac tie to hang it up and to attach the heart.

I'm entering this tag in the following challenges:
