I'll Give You My Heart

This is a 4X6 piece cut from my handy test paper pad.  I liked what I accidentally created on my test pad with this image.  I have been staring at it for months.  What to do with it.



I finally decided to recreate the work on an ATC sized tag.  I was working on her when the DragonsDream Tag It On challenge was announced...Pink and Hearts.  Well, I had the pale pink background.  But I didn't see a way to add a heart.  UNTIL I started cleaning off my desk top.  There it was, a leftover tiny fabric stamped heart from the Valentines.  The perfect final detail for her.  It was just what she needed.



On the back.

That this is so far away from what I do is why I like it so very much. Love the grungy back with the layers (I think) of stamping and the way you have made the front where the heart gives it just that little bit of light. I am always fascinated by the way you do your soft colouring and painting without edges.

Great card Annie!

For some reason this one strikes me differently from the ones you usually have done before. Perhaps it just reminds me of religious symbolism….who knows? (OR…maybe I just read too many Dan Brown books. lol)

Wonderful tag Annie! You've done yourself proud.
I know I haven't been around lately. We are in the midst of packing for a move. It will be a while before we are settled. I will be popping in and out - don't forget me!
