You've got to have a Heart

Another great challenge over at Tag Tuesday started today..and I am hosting and offering a little prize to one of the entries..so well worth popping over and having a play.
My theme is "Have a Heart", not only is February my birth month,it is also the month for love.
Now your tag dosen't have to be Valentine or Romantically themed..just show a heart or hearts on your tag somewhere to qualify to enter the challenge...just have fun...
Here are the 2 tags I created....


I created the background with acrylic paints, gesso ,stencils and stamps, then I added 2 die hearts that I had daubed with red acrylic paint.
To finish I inked around the edge of the tag to slightly distress it.


For this tag I added vintage backing paper and stamped over that..I swiped over the whole tag with a thin coat of gesso, once dry I went over the tag with walnut stain distress ink, leaving the centre of the tag lighter than the sides. Using the same ink, I stamped some little hearts on to the tag.
I stamped, painted and cut out the Gibson girl's head and added her to the tag, then added some vintage lace and binding that I had inked up and dried. The flower was actually shop bought but was just perfect for this tag.

Hope to see you enter the challenge...you can find it here
