I love hearts as any regular readers of my blog will know and with the month in mind, my theme this week is romantic. I made my tag in the shape of a heart, backed with card for strength and with a patchwork paper background. Onto this I added scraps of trim and a lovely vintage glass button. I cut out a scrapbook paper flower which appealed to me and added some scrap lace and fabric "streamers" to the side of the tag. It is finished with a velvet and lace ribbon.

The tag without any background "noise".
Pop over to the Tag Tuesday blog to see other gorgeous heart tags.
I'm a self-taught altered and mixed media artist, embroiderer and small scale quilter. I love collage, distressed and vintage art, rubber stamping and digital collage, as well as playing around in Photoshop Elements.
I also adore fabric, needlework/ embroidery and quilting and can't resist adding to my stash of lace, fabric, ribbons, buttons and embellishments.
I live in a very old cottage in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds in the UK, am now retired and looking forward to good health, being a lady of leisure and hope to spend more of my free time creating.
