A Loving Heart (by Judith)

Hello everyone, I have a project to share using the new Flowering Baroque Heart clear stamp with you today. This is such a pretty stamp, and a great addition to the clear heart stamp range.

I started my project by adhering some book pages to a chipboard heart, and once the background was dry, I coloured it with Distress Crayons, spritzing them lightly with water, and adding a bit more here and there, moving the colour around with my fingers and a baby wipe. I dried the background with a heat gun, and stamped the heart image, using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. I stamped the image again onto a pale piece of scrapbook paper, and coloured the foliage on the spare image, and the heart on the chipboard shape with pencils.

I cut the foliage image out from the scrapbook paper, and decoupaged it onto the chipboard heart, and added some fine glitter to the stamens of the flowers. I added some gold paste to the edge of the heart.

To create the main background, I glued some strips of bookpaper to a chipboard square, and added layers of acrylic paint to the background, drying each layer, to avoid muddying the colours. I painted some strips of lace to tone in with the flowers, added some tiny mosaic tiles, and stamped the word 'Love', from the Words of Love stamp set.

Keep checking back for more inspiration from my Team Mates using this lovely stamp throughout the month. Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx
