Had some real fun making this. I started life as a plain white Art tag from Inkylicious. The main image is from crafty individuals
and is stamped with Tim Holtz Faded Jeans DI and Broken China DI, then covered with clear embossing powder and heated, this was done a few times, once cooled it was bend over and this caused it to crack, giving it an aged look. Distress Inks Faded Jeans, Shabby Shutters, Victorian Velvet and Brushed Corduroy were used to create the background before Tim Holtz small stamps from a QVC TSV were used to create the background.
The rose was created with a stamp from Dimension stamps and K & Company Peabody paperstack. The heart stamp is from Kanban and is stamped onto grunge paper. The ribbon and button are from my stash as is the swirl which was coloured with faded jeans DI and victorian velvet DI.
