Having looked around a few challenge posts, the theme for February seems to be moving towards 'love' what with valentines and the like, so I decided to have a go at another ATB. So after measuring, cutting and scoring, I started by colouring some packaging with a mix of barn door, festive berries and seedless preserve distress paints. For some reason after this photo they went a bit orangey as opposed to the true colours as above.
I stamped the edges of each panel with PA minis, flourishes, script and splodges in black archival ink.
I decided to use the same type of feet for the base as they are very stable and easy to attach!!
And the rest of the sides.
For the top I dyed a piece of white lace with festive berries distress stain and added a couple of small chipboard hearts.
I used little black dress and blood orange fresco to colour the Sizzix chipboard heart, covered it in a layer of rock candy crackle paste. Added a piece of hessian, tulle, a glittered heart brad and a couple of eyelets.
Wooden heart coloured with metallic distress paints and stamped in little black dress fresco.
Heart covered in a layer of rich red ranger embossing powder, then a coat of pomegranate wow powders. Wings embossed, painted in little black dress and ruby TG rubbed over the raised areas.
Two hearts mounted on a piece of black tulle and ric rac. Hearts painted in blood orange and little black dress. Two gems from Hobby House from the ruby mix selection added to smaller heart.
