Be My Valentine Peeled Paint Tag

Earlier this week I shared February's Mixed Media Technique Calendar Page that featured the peeled paint technique using acrylic paints and petroleum jelly.  When I was finished painting my gothic arch I had quite a bit of each color of paint left over so I used up the rest making this tag...

Not one to let anything go to waste I thought it would work perfectly for a Valentine's Day tag so that's just what I did....

I stamped the background using a script stamp and Spiced Chai Staz-On ink and glued on a strip of printed ribbon.  I found the heart laying in a pile on my desk from a previous creation which I stamped my sentiment on and then added Delicata Gold and Bronze inks around the top and bottom edges...I wish it showed up better in the photo - the shimmer is brilliant.  

Finally I stamped the rose on a piece of extra smooth white cardstock from Club Scrap and colored the image using my Chameleon Markers.  It was then fussy cut and mounted on the tag.  I added a few dots of Gold Pico Embellisher to finish it off.  

I need to find some ribbon for the hole then I will call it finished ready to be tied onto a Valentine's gift bag!  The only question is who I'll give it to?!?!?
