Delicious Doodles Guest Designer

I've been privileged to be asked to join Delicious Doodles: love is in the air, as their Guest Designer. As the theme is 'love' I chose to use the steampunk heart image. I coloured parts of this with metallic pens - gold, copper and light and dark silvers, sponging with fired brick distress ink. The two background papers were from PDA (a long time ago) - I sponged the main background one with the fired brick. I embossed a piece of 7 gypsies collections from the journey with an embossing folder and then sponged with fired brick. I added a metal keyhole from The Works and the sentiment which was generated on my Dymo letratag.
