Red and hearts have to feature somewhere on February's Craft Barn Calendar Challenge entry.
I used the wrinkle free distress ink technique for the background of this tag. Rather than just using red (Festive Berry Distress Ink) which may have looked like a nasty nose bleed on the card, I mellowed it by adding Crushed Olive. I stamped a couple of extra hearts and stuck one directly onto the stamped image and the other under Glossy Accents on a bottle cap. The bottle cap was painted around the edge with PaperArtsy Fresco's "London Bus" and then a coat of their Metallic Gloss was added at which point it turned a bit pink rather than the red I hoped for. A little lace was added and a piece of seam binding coloured with Distress Ink and that's February tag in the bag. I feel as if the year is already rushing by!
