Key to My Heart

This is my make today over at That's Crafty DT Blog.  

These tags are so sturdy they can take much more punishment than you could normally throw at a tag and support greater weight in embellishments.  I started both the tag and heart with a layer of Gesso. 

On the tag I added Modelling Paste through That’s Crafty stencils, When dry I painted it with the Pearl Metallic Paint, in a small amount of separate Pearl paint I added a tiny amount of the Lindys Magicals powder to tint the pearl paint and blended it into the tag leaving some parts pearl and others a pale pink.  I added random text stamping.
For the heart I again painted it with the pearl paint, then went over that with the alcohol inks, on one side of the heart I added a further layer of pearl and the other a layer of the Ranger Crackle Accents.  I gave the key a coat of the Gilding Wax.
I coloured the canvas with a mix of water and a Magicals  and cut a heart out of the canvas slightly larger than the MDF heart and one from the wadding the same size.   
For the flowers I mixed a combination of the Pearl paints with Magicals
When dry I assembled the tag
