Love & Hearts Theme Week - with Nikki K.

Morning everyone,

Today I'm sharing a tag made for the 'Love & Heart's' theme week.  I thought I'd go with the 'secret admirer' slant,  because if I have any, they are definitely secret!!

I put some modelling paste through a stencil, onto the Tando tag.  This was then given a coat of grey paint that I mixed with Tinting Base and Carbon Black paint.  I covered that in White Antiquing Cream, and rubbed back to give depth to the background.  Some red and black stamping in paint finished this off.

The Tando heart was painted in Red, and stamped.  Over this I put a layer of Crackle Glaze.

A book plate, numbers, bolts and nuts were painted in rust colours, and a sentiment stamped for the book plate.

I added rusty wire to the top of the tag, and shaped the top like a little rustic heart.  I didn't glue the heart down, so it moves as you move the tag, which is quite nice.

Hope you like it and can join the rest of the team this week for more inspiration.

Best Wishes,

Nikki K.
