Dt piece for dragons dream TIO #124 ..in a heartbeat

well it is time for another recipe,
and this time was my turn to choose!!
 so without further ado here is the recipe..
titled "in a heartbeat".
so the 3 things are:
a beating heart, a weathered timepiece and  a bit of grunge..
there are no other rules as long as you use a real rubber stamp and make a tag!
 
so here's mine:
 
 
I started by making the grungy background,
using a take on Tim's rusted enamel technique..
then overstamping the fab barbwire stamp and adding some
mini attachers staples..
 
 
i scuffed and distressed..
adding a weathered clock die cut..
 
 
a grunged up heart and of course..
rude not too..some wings
plenty more staples...
 
 
a quote with some twisted wire,
red dyed ribbon and a beautiful red heart
from the lovely Mel, thanks..Mel.x
 
make sure you pop across here and see what my fably creative team mates have dreamt up
and why not have a try yourself..
cooking is not my strong point but these recipes are really FUN!
 
 
have a fun and inky day!
