Hearts for Tag tuesday.

Hi everybody!
Our them at Tag Tuesday this week is 'hearts'. Hmm, not really my fave theme, I am not a romantic type, but as Valentine's Day is drawing nearer, I played with hearts...
The first one was made with a heart cut from corrugated cardboard, partly peeled, painted white end embossed onto the wet paint with Frantage shabby pink. The die-cut wings were given the same treatment. I cut a second, smaller heart out of a fabric scrap, and then threw on all the pink flowers I had, a key, and some pink ribbons.




The second heart is a die-cut chipboard one, which has been languishing in one of my boxes for a long time. I painted it in blues and greens, and then sprinkled it with glitter, and added some crackle varnish. This time I threw on all the blue and white flowers I could find, and some beads instead of a ribbon.

Here's wishing you all a good day, take care, and thanks for coming by!

  1. What a great collections of hearts! For someone who claims to not be romantic, your hearts would say differently! These are both stunners! Actually I am not a romantic type, but will make a few V-Day cards and tags! Hugs!

    I do like the key on the pink one and the fancy blue one with all the lovely little blue flowers.

  15. I missed "our" walk today but it was probably for the best as I feel as if I am coming down with a cold. I have to admit Valerie, I was shocked when I saw your make and for someone who is not a romantic you sure make pretty romantic hearts!!
    We have snow and it looks gorgeous outside!
