Heart and Soul

Over on Dragon'sDream Tag It On challenge we're still in a very romantic mood. Frankie and Freddie are on their honeymoon, and my warmest congratulations and best wishes are being sent via cyberspace. In keeping with her mood, Frankie has asked us to dream a tag to symbolize "Heart and Soul".
I had two thoughts immediately pop into my head, and rather than decide which to do - put them both on opposite sides of a tag.
The first side is a patterned paper with little flowers and dragonflies onto which I stamped in red ink, hearts within a heart shaped stamp. I think was from C&C. Pieced onto which is an Autumn wreath from Sunshine stamps, with an image from Tanda stamps in the centre. The colours silver and gold being the happy couple. The little picture is a downloaded image of the heart and soul nebula. The obverse side I used a piece of black imitation leather that I found in the attic, onto which is stuck three interlocking hearts from Soft Pencil.
The explanation of the colours used can be found on my "Handfasting" post so I won't go into all that again. The ties are lengths of embroidery silk.
