Romance tag

Another Tag -  Dragons Dream Tag It On Challenge 104 Letters to Juliet - Romance. 
I have been making Christmas tags and things so this was a nice change, I don't always get chance to play here at TIO but as I was in the process of making tags it seemed I could just make one more.........lol
I will also join in at Simon Says Stamp and Show  Some Women Only Challenge (hope this counts)!!

The background was made using Distress Inks over a stamped image which I stamped in versamark if you look closely in the photo below you may see  it is quite subtle and the fact that I stamped over it and kept adding to the tag there's not a lot of space left to see it......lol.

Using Stampin' Up! set Artistic Etchings I stamped in frayed burlip distress inks, then next layer in black soot, postage stamp was stamped on separate piece inked with tattered rose and cut out, pen nib was also cut out this stamp and sentiment are Tim Holtz. Lastly I added lace from my stash to the bottom edge, string from the tag and lace and fibres at the top,  flower which is three layered together and the tiny one already had a bead in the centre, these were inked also but sorry they don't show up in photo as it was so subtle!!

Hope you like my interpretation of the challenge

Bye for now
