You're so beautiful tag

I wanted to create a Valentine themed tag but with an industrial twist and this is the result. 
It's rather difficult to photo but I think you can see the effects.

I have used the faux riveted metal technique as taught us by the great man himself, Tim Holtz, and added dimension using Maimeri modelling paste mixed with some red metallic acrylic paint and applied over a cogs and gears mask using a palette knife.
 I left it to dry while I made the little cherub using the movers and shapers die, painting it with white acrylic paint and walnut stain distress ink for the body and some black and white paint for the wings, then stamping the Crafty Individuals 161 text stamp over it. I covered this with UTEE and sprinkled some glamour dust over the wings. 

I used the same technique for the hearts but used the red metallic paint with the white.  
The butterfly is one of my downloads that I use also covered with embossing powder and I added other accents of black using ribbon, words and a scrap of Tim's vintage lace die-cut. Don't you just love that cute little heart? It's available from the Craft's Too Vintage Selection along with some fabulous keys, available at The Art of Craft. It's well worth taking a look at this range, the embellishments are such good value.
