Shabby heart (posted by Claire)

Hi there, Claire here with a card featuring the gorgeous Fuchsia Baroque Heart stamp. Fuchsias are such beautiful delicate flowers, they are one of my all time favourites so I couldn't resist this stamps.

The image is coloured with promarkers and decoupaged, you can see the detail a little better in this photo:

I've matted the image on a doily, coloured with black soot distress ink. The music background was made using Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap (available as a great Taster Size), I used a shaped card blank and applied a layer of Matte Multi Medium and then attached the tissue wrap, making sure it was crumpled and creased in places. I added some colour with distress stains (Antique Linen and Worn Lipstick). Once the background was dry I added faux pearls around the edge. The backing papers are by Prima (from the Almanac Collection), coloured with a little worn lipstick distress ink. I've added some black lace and a black organza bow to finish off.

Thanks for popping by

  1. Oh my goodness, that is so pretty. Decoupaging the fuchsias was a great idea.

  2. The black & white with pink really provides a super background for the fuchsias & the whole is a real eye-catcher with the dimension you created by decoupaging the flowers. the white background of the heart really draws the eye.
