TIO #11 Passion - The Heart Song

This is my tag for DragonsDream TIO #11 Passion - The Heart Song, this week. It is inspired by my continuing love affair with Fred, a wonderful man, who loves and cares for me... We have not known each other long, as many of you who know my story will already understand. But it seems like we have always known each other, perhaps in some other life. I wrote a poem about this and you can read it here, if you are interested.

My tag is full of Passion, colour, texture and depth, and was not easy to scan. I might try a photo later... I used shiny card and distress inks, plus Adirondak red pepper and swirled red, gold and bronze pearly doodles on to my heat sheet. This created the different tones and the texture. I overstamped with red hearts, and clear ep, as well as field of sky and stars, from Stamp Addicts by Judikins, in black stazon and clear ep. The flower was a piece of board and I smothered it in various purple eps, then stamped into the hot mixture to get the texture. The middle has a piece of sparkly ribbon, rouched into it. The whole heart is stamped from a sheet by Elusive Images, on to a piece of 3"x3" acrylic and embossed in clear and purple eps, on the reverse side. The finishing touch was the little back beads, which outline the heart. I really enjoyed this one!! Thanks for looking...

Love and love when it is so passionate is so wonderful and glorious! Enjoy every moment with your Fred. I live a life of passion every day with my husband. It CAN last forever, even with the humdrum of every day life mixed in!!!

Your story is so heartwarming Frankie. I am really happy for you both and hope you continue to make each other happy for a very long time.
Your tag is lovely. So full of colours and textures. A feeling rather than a statement. I love it!
