Framed Flowering Baroque Heart (by Julie)

Hello and today it's me, Julie showing you my last creation for this month, using the rather wonderful Flowering Baroque Heart


For this project I stamped and embossed with white detail embossing powder, onto black card and coloured with pigment powders. Then I took some kitchen towel so that I could dab Brushed Pewter Distress paint over the background.
For the frame I used this little 15 cm x 15 cm MDF number. I chose a leaf design stencil and applied molding paste, through the stencil and all around the little frame. Once dry I coated the entire frame with black Gesso, gold gilding wax and Brushed Pewter Distress paint to create an aged metal finish.
I cut the stamped heart to size, placed in the centre of the frame and applied a black, gloss paint pen around the inside of the frame.

Many thanks for taking a look. Please call back very soon for another Design Team member's inspiration.
