First DT Project for Dragon's Team Tag It On - Script, L and a real stamp

Hi, I'm Jax and I have a crafting addiction.  Ooops wrong intro.

This is my first DT piece and I hope it inspires you to join us at Dragon's Team TIO challenge.

I started with a Kraft Tag and ran it through a script embossing folder, I then highlighted the embossing with Crushed Olive Distress Ink, I then spent the next hour trying to remember which box the wooden letters were in, but during the search I found lots of other bits I forgot I had.  I tinted the letter in the same distress ink and sat it on the tag, but it didn't stand off the page enough, so I switched ideas and went for Ranger Antiquities Patina embossing powder instead, I gave it two coats to give it a really enameled look.  I cut the Cheery Lynn Steampunk hearts out of some Bazzil from stash, and stamped the jigsaw heart from PaperArtsy's EDY02 plate in versamark and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Blue Raspberry Aurora.  I used "love" and "notes" from Tim Holtz Idealogy Chit Chat tinted with Crushed Olive to finish it off.
