I finally managed to get crafty and make something this weekend. I've been so busy producing PowerPoint presentations for sessions at work and yesterday I spent the whole day writing 3 assignments for my college course which I have to hand in on Wednesday. I was hoping to have them done and finished whilst I was off in-between christmas and new year but unfortunately I was succumbed to this flippin flu bug come chest infection and was laid up for at least 4 days!!!
Anyway, back to the piece. To find out how I created the texture for the heart and wings go check out the technique zone blog as I've put a tutorial on there. Unfortunately due to the poor light and gloomy day you can't really see that the background colour is silver and the heart itself is metallic green with bronze rubbed over the top and edged in black. I used one of T!m's alteration dies for the scroll, painted and edged it and stamped the word 'honour' in black stazon. The background is one of my favourties, a piece of corrugated, ripped and torn.
