Steampunk Heart- Round Robin

If you remember a couple of weeks ago I shared my Round Robin cover
 for my book
from the swap at Kindred Souls Art Group
Well this month I had a chance to work on Rhea's book.
Her theme is Steampunk Heart's
CLOCKWORK HEART
This page features Tim Holtz clock die that I rusted.
 Image inside is from Graphics 45.
Its hard to tell from the photo but the image was crackled first then I added a layer of
gel medium to tone down the shine. Also added some of Tim's ideology gears.

The text is from Alpha Stamps and the Steampunk heart is a collection of
clock pieces I put together.

THE KEY
The back page heart was embossed on metal painted and sanded back.
Then I added a touch of Perfect Pearls for color.
I punched holes all around the heart and used metal wire to stitch around it.
I again Rusted the key. The word is from Tim's Ransom letters.

You open the heart to reveal "Love is All you need"
some of Tim's gear die cuts ,a clock. Women image cut into heart shape
and a old tintype also cut into a heart shape.
I sure hope she likes it.

I'm entering this in Nancys 14 Hearts challenge
