From the heart

This weekend I decided to create my Indogoblu challenge piece.

My beloved bought me loads of goodies for Christmas and in the stash was a MDF door hanger.

I covered it with gesso and then applied a coat of pantry white acrylic paint. I distress around the edges with distress ink worn lipstick.

It got really messy next with some squirts of dylusions ink sprays, pink blue and yellow.

I stamped the ' love is' image with archival black ink and added some colour using distress inks, picked up with my aqua brush.

I also stamped 'script' using a light grey ink and finally using blue ink I stamped 'harlequin' to add some interest.

Using a Martha Stewart punch I created some flowers coloured with matching inks to compliment the scheme. I used round nosed pliers to coil odd bits of black wire to tuck in with the flowers.

Adding the lace around the edge wasn't easy!  Some pink glitter stickles covered a multitude of sins.

The final embellishments were made using a flourish spellbinders die, craft foam and painting it with silver acrylic paint.

This project will hang from my craft room door with pride.
