Hello everyone and a special welcome if you are new here!
I designed my creation today with Frilly and Funkie's ValenTwine theme in mind. I had created the textured and embossed background a few weeks ago and it was sitting on my desk so decided to put it to use. The background was created on kraft card using tinted texture paste through Tim Holtz lattice work stencil with some clear embossing powder added which was heated when the paste was dry. The card was then sprayed with tarnished brass distress spray.
I added some corrugated cardboard which has some decoart sand texture paste and gesso on it with a little wild honey distress ink to add colour.
Both my birds (Stampin' Up punch) and heart (found on my desk) were treated with Deco Art crackle paint and again a little wild honey added. My oval frame has gesso added for texture and colour added randomly.
You can't really see it but the base layer is kraft card with gesso splodged around and the edges distressed. The middle layer is vellum stamped with a fab new Stampin' Up stamp I have - called 'I love lace'. (Sorry no close up of this.)
Some white bakers twine was wrapped around the heart and some chit chat stickers added.
I would also like to enter the following challenges:
Thanks for looking
