Proof that the heart is a thing with wings

This tag are a little darker than your typical Valentine. I started by layering the tag with Pumice Stone Distress ink.  Stampers Anonymous "Evidence" stamp is inked with Black Soot Distress.  The script stamp was done in Pumice Stone too.
The heart was given a coat of Festive Berries Distress Stain.  I then misted it and crumpled it up.  I dried it and then ran Black Soot and Antique Photo all over to pick up the creases and wrinkles.  The Tattered Wings were given the same treatment minus the distress stain.  
The edges were roughed up using the Tonic Paper Distresser.  
A memo pin to make it look like a specimen and it's done. 
Dark and lovely.   
I'm entering this one into the Stampotique Designers Challenge 133 Heart in your Art Challenge and the Fussy and Fancy Valentine Challenge.  Last, but not least, I will enter into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Have a Heart Challenge
What have you been crafting?
