Be Still My Beating Heart

I hope this posts ok, 'cos I'm still on my jolly holidays so please do your thing Mr Blogger! This time around Tracey has chosen the theme of 'In A Heartbeat', so we need a beating heart (yikes) a weathered timepiece, and a bit of grunge.
Well, I'm right out of beating hearts, but I do have a bit of grungeboard in a heart shape. I've coloured it in red acrylic paint,  painted in Verday metallic, then sprayed with the magic spray for the rusty look.  The drippy blood is glass paint
or is it....
The base tag is Core-dinations that's gone through the TH embossing folder. I've then sanded over and rubbed a red ink pad over the top.
My weathered timepiece has had the verday treatment, and it now looks like something the cat has dug up in the garden lol.
Only two real stamps this time - how bad is that!! They are from Bomshell stamps and they don't get out nearly often enough.
Please check out my teamies tags, then get out your stamps and come and join in.
Thanks very much for looking x
