Secret Message Heart Tag

This is my entry for the following challenges.
Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2013
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Have a Heart

It's a bit like spot the difference.

Firstly, I coloured a  tag with distress stains and attached tissue.  A sizzix die was used to remove a heart from the tag.

The Stampers Anonymous stamp was coloured with Distress Markers and inks.
A letter F was stamped on shrink plastic and coloured with alcohol ink prior to shrinking.

The heart that had been removed was now reattached with 2 jump rings to create a hinge - this stage has a fiddly factor of at least 40,000!

I used tissue tape to create a folded rose.  Fiddly seems to be a bit of a theme here.

Seam binding was coloured with Distress Stain to create a bow.  Chain and a flourish finished it off.
