Heart and Soul…

That’s the tag I’ve created for this week’s “Tag, you’re it” #6 and Layers of Colour this week. Taggers asked for black and gold; LOC seeks embossing on our artwork. I loved Laura’s highly stylised heart so much that the good old tomato paste tube, coloured with a bit of alcohol ink came out again! I stamped the heart with PM foam stamps on the reverse and used my embossing tool to shape it and embellish. The images are from Crafty Individuals Miniatures and I’ve used text strips torn from an old book. All the edging is done with a gold ink pad and the fibres and ribbon are black and gold! What an enjoyable thing to create!

\"Heart and soul...\"

I’ll be carving some more stamps this evening and I still have another project to make, as I see Sara’s back with Skinny Saturdays! And then who knows what Lisa will have us doing outside our comfort zones this weekend??? Also, Michelle Ward has just posted the next Crusade over at GPP Street Team – Paper casting… can’t wait to have a go at that one!
