Hearts Aloft

After yesterday's distinct lack of creativity, and with today being 
Valentine's Day
it was time to get back in the groove and make something worth blogging about!

With "Romek" as the centre of attention, I started by stamping and colouring him on scrap card before fussy cutting around him.  I cut around three hearts that had previously been stamped, and added tiny amounts of Silk Acrylic Glaze in 'Love Struck', 'Ginger Flower' and 'Emporor's Gold' , 

Taking a #8 tag, I scribbled Gelatos over it, then dipping my finger in some water, moved and blended the Gelatos around.  Next I took my stencil, some white craft ink and a dauber and created clouds over the pale blue background.

Once the background was dry, I stamped 'Romek' directly onto the tag.  I then glued the scrap card image of 'Romek' over the top, and added the heart balloons.

Words from Tim Holtz Idea-ology 'small talk - occasions' and a co-ordinating red ribbon completes the tag.

As this is so much better then yesterday's mishmash,
I am entering this tag in this weeks challenge.
