Tag of Love

Week #30 CCC Altered Metal with Paint

Linda has set us this challenge for week #30 from the Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities Book on page 48.  Now you know by now I can't say how I did it but if you have the book have a go and join in  over at Studio L3 hosted by the lovely Linda .  Sadly this challenge is drawing to an end and I have managed to join in every week except one, I for one will miss it but Linda hinted last week - well teased - that there may be more to come................. how exciting is that!! 
I have also combined this project with several other challenges with a Love theme.  Sunday Stampers hosted by Hels - Sentiments ; The Artistic Stampers Creative Team  Blog - Love is in the Air; Simon Says Stamp and Show - Some Love.

Tag was inked with DI rusty hinge, worn lipstick, metal was altered according to the book technique with ranger dabber paints watermelon Idea-ology heart and terra cotta clip(Stampin Up!.) Stamps used from Tim Holtz. Tag background was stamped and embossed within an inch of its little life as I got a bit carried away in the process, the Sentiment was stamped onto an Idea-ology Journaling Ticket in black versafine, clip and heart were attached and finally I found some red roses in my stash.... amazing what you find when you rummage isn't it...LOL lastly I added velvet ribbon which I found in a bargain bin for 50p for 5meteres - bargain .......I should say!!

Hope you like my creation and please leave me a comment if you drop in as it is always lovely to hear from you, till next time.............
Bye for now
