Love is in the Air

After making my February Tag I had lots of bits and pieces on my desk and decided to make a couple of ATC's some of my favourite things to make and if I have time at the end of a project I like to do this with the left overs and it is very relaxing as I have nothing in mind when I start just to play as I go.  A Vintage Journey's new challenge Tic Tac Toe  was posted this morning  the Line I used was Ribbon/Twine - Die cuts  -Stains, you can also use other products with your chosen Tic Tac Toe.

For the  background on the ATC on the right is used Fired Brick stain directly onto white card and moped up the stain from my craft sheet for the 2nd background which was much lighter.  Embossed with Tim's Embossing Folder I highlighted the raised areas with black soot distress ink direct from pad heavier on the number 14 when dry I smudged gesso over some areas, black soot was applied to the edges.  Tissue tape flower, die cut key, stamped and embossed word which I cut out and lastly twine was tied to key  .  
ATC on the left background as above smeared with a little gesso, stamped and embossed words , tissue tape frill, ribbon, Die cut larger heart smaller ones were punched all from embossed red card distressed with black soot distress ink (same card I used on my February Tag) Here, added some lace and edges with black soot.

I would also like to play at
