"Love, I am so worried about you!"

DragonsDreamTagItOn's "In a heartbeat" - challenge wants to see a beating heart, a worn time piece and a bit of grunge on this fortnight's tags, so here they come:



As a passionate P&P roleplayer, I especially love settings from the Victorian aera. So, when I stumbled over this lovely couple, I had a whole scene in mind immediately, which I tried to tell on this one tag. She is so worried about him, not having been well for quite a long time yet. Will he really be fine, as he says? Or does the torn pocket watch - meant as a symbol? - tell otherwise? Who knows...

The badge, telling about perfect blood circulation being perfect health, tells us part of the story too. And Carter's Little Liver Pills... did he take them in vain for all these years? So many facts to consider. So much to worry about.

On this tag I used some self printed ephemera, stamps from Tim Holtz and Graphics 45's "Olde Curiosity Shoppe" collection. I used Ranger Distress inks "walnut stain", "vintage photo" and "rusty hinge". I altered the pocket watch embellishment with AAI "rust" and "sunset". For drawing and writing the speech bubbles I used a permanent black lumocolor pen from Staedtler. The self adhesive black velvet ribbon comes from the Depot store's sale.

Here some close-ups and different angled views:

      I love the badges too. They were my source of inspiration for this tag. And yes, you are right - one could almost call it a graphic novel :)

  12. Love the way you've managed to tell the story within the confines of a tag. The timepiece is a great clue as to whether time is running out for the unfortunate man.

  15. Wow! You are so clever! I love the idea of the story-telling (which you do so well, by the way). So much detail in your tag and such great fun in wondering how it will all turn out for the loving couple. Hugs from NZ.
