Feminine and Fancy at Try it on Tuesday

The latest challenge at Try it on Tuesday is Feminine and Fancy! Not my natural style - but I seem to have gone all pink again!

I altered this chipboard heart with acrylic paints - using a brayer to get that slightly uneven, shabby effect. the ladies face is an Inkylicious stamp and the cracks and reeds are from a Sheena Douglas set - all stamped in archival. 

I then added some Ranger Antiquities weathered white embossing powder around the edges and decorated with various flowers and butterflies from my stash. There is even some glitter!

Do pop over to the main blog to see some great inspiration from my fellow Design team members. 

I would like to enter:
Have a lovely day and thanks for looking.
