All the stamps I used are by and from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies.
I am rather new to stamping scapes and watercolouring, but I quite like how this turned out. I love colouring with my waterbrush and distress inks and markers. It make it so easy.....well a lot easier hahaha.

February is the month of luuuuurve. So a lot of challenges are about hearts or red. As I was asked to participate in two mixed media challenges, one for red, the Emerald Creek Dare and one for hearts and wings, I decided to combine the two.
I took a mixed media tag from Ranger and inked it with fired brick distress ink. I then too the flourish stencil from Tim Holtz and inked again with fired brick. I wanted the heart to be on top so I inked through that stencil with fired brick distress Oxide.... Oh how I love the oxides!! I stamped the background and the sentiment with the oxide also. It stamps amazing!
With an embossing pen I traced the left side of the stenciled hearts and heat embossed that with Chinese New Year embossing powder by Emerald Creek Craft Supplies. It is a gorgeous deep red with a gold glitter in it.
I assembled various embellishments and painted them with a few different browns, greens and turquoise to age it all. On the heart I glued a "diamond" in the hole and colored the centre of the heart with red pepper alcohol ink. And also glued a bigger "diamond" in there. I cut a little stitched banner from some manila card with a Simonsaysstamp die and ibked it and put a remnant rub on it. Some rings make it possible to hang it from the arrow.
I glued it all to the tag and coloured the crinkle ribbon with fired brick distress ink and made my fluffy bow to finish it all off.
Thank you for stepping by.
Keep your craft on :-)

I made this tag with the heart stencil by Tim Holtz and various embossing enamels by Emerald Creek Craft Supplies. The top rows are Oh Canada red, the second red is Sweet Valentine embossing powder and the last red I used is Chinese New Year. I love the variety of reds.
I was inspired by the Emerald Creek Dare blog.
I didn't want to cover the background too much with any embellishments, so I kept it simple. Just a few tickets and some roses I made from paper clay.
Thank you for stepping by :-)
