Be A Good One

It's been a few month's since I've entered the Tim Holtz  tags challenge so I was really pleased to get this one finished in the correct month lol.
Being as it's February's we still have a lurve theme going on. As usual I don't have most of the 'ingredients' so there's a bit of improv here (which I quite like)
I've followed Tim's directions 'cos he seems to know what he's talking about (just joking the guys a genius) I like the way that at each stage you think 'this is awful, should I bin it now' but then it all comes together at the end.
I didn't have the Tim stencil or stamp, but I do have a full house on the inks. Some things I just buy as soon as they come out :-) 
The stamp is by Artistic Outpost, which I've highlighted with a page pebble.
The trim is washi tape that I though fitted in nicely with the stencil.
I was in a messy mood, so I made a love potion, and blinged up a piece of hessian ribbon with ink and embossing powder. It literally took me 2 days to get my fingers clean :-)
This was great fun to make and I now know how far one drop of re-inker goes!
I'm also entering this into the Artistic Outpost Feb referral. Thanks very much for looking and enjoy your weekend xx
