Curiously Rusted

We are back to our weekly challenge over at Studio L3 with the Compendium of Curiosities challenge and this week it is RUSTED GRUNGE.  The technique can be found on page 45 of the book.
I have added the RUSTED GRUNGE technique to my key and heart. I decided I would break my rusted heart in a couple of places to add to that old, rusty, aged feel.
The hearts are from the Heart Wings die and they have been coloured with DI Fired Brick with Crackle Accents added over the top.  A Philosopy Tag, ribbon, button and sentiment generated on the computer complete my entry for this week.  I would also like to thank Linda for kindly drawing my name out of the hat this week for the extra prize, I thoroughly enjoyed spending my voucher so a big THANK YOU.  Tracy x x
