A Textured Heart

I got these mdf hearts a while ago, they are quite a nice size to work with.  I spread a mixture of texture paste and puff paint through a stencil and heated it.

I painted it with 3 shades of blue fresco paints.  The black card has been embossed with a script folder and brushed over with pewter treasure gold to hi-light the embossing.  The dream was stamped from my darkroom door set onto white card in black stazon.  The image is one I made much earlier here.  There is also a YT vid on it now which Leandra of Paperartsy has shared here.  The background has also been accented with the pewter treasure gold.  Fibres added to finish.

Love the texture you've been getting on your tags recently and now this heart. And then you pile on scrumptious colour too. In fact you've done such a great job on selling it that some Treasure Gold has arrived here for Christmas!! Do you think you could earn commission?! Looking forward to more, hugs Jenny x

A really special way to decorate the heart. Your use of the texture for the background is so neat.

Love Chrissie xx

Hi I'm Sam, 45, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 25 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 9 years and 0 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
