TIO #94 Bed of Roses - Bon Jovi & Metal

One of my most loved songs of all time has to be "Bed of Roses" by Bon Jovi, it's such a beautiful love song, and I'm a soppy old Hector at heart!
Inspired by Frankie's metal flowers I decided to have a go at making some of my own, the perfect match for my song choice. The base stamp of a rose is a sale bargain from The Stampman, coloured in with promarkers. I then inked up the tag in a mixture of peeled paint, shabby shutters and black soot distress inks. The sentiment is from PSX and stamped out in black soot. My roses are made from the Tattered Flower die, and coloured using red pepper alcohol ink. The prima leaves were left over from another project. I hope my choice of song will inspire you to dream with us this week.  Elizabeth xxx If anyone doesn't know the song, scroll down to the bottom of my blog and check out my playlist.
