Time for a new challenge over at A Vintage Journey today where the theme was chosen by Astrid and is 'Love is in the Air'. I chose to take a slightly more feminine route for this one using embossing folders and distress paints.
Both the two layers and the hearts were first embossed with various embossing folders before being painted with gesso and once dry, various distress paints. Once dry I sanded back to reveal the embossed surface.
My swirl was painted with colour and then crackle paint.The flowers were made with the smallest flower from the tattered florals die. I wet and screwed up some white cardstock and once fully dry I die cut and then lightly sponged over with distress inks before creating the flowers.
My metal tag was covered with picket fence distress paint and after a few moments the surface wiped clean leaving the paint in the text to dry.
