Firstly a big Hello to new follower Sue, welcome aboard on my crafty journey to who knows where :)
Recently I purchased a few new goodies including mdf hearts, Indigo Blu stamps and Kroma crackle. Today I finished a heart that I am going to enter in this months Indigo Blu challenge Words & Phrases.
Firstly I gave the heart a coat of gesso and a coat of acrylic paint. The Indigo Blu Elizabeth Bennett stamp was stamped directly onto the Heart with archival coffee and coloured again with acrylic paints.
I used the Kroma crackle around the edges of the heart and used distress stains to age a little.
The wording was from the Indigo Blu Hocus Pocus stamp set which is one of their originals and one of my favorites.
I used various flowers and trinkets from my stash to decorate. The metal trinkets around the edge were part of an old chain belt that I took apart. They did not have pink gems on, I have added these for a bit of bling.
My photography skills are not the best and it looks a little more Peach on the photo than it is in the flesh, also the metal trinkets look quite dark, they are actually much more of a brass colour in real life.
I quite like the finished result, I am not normally a crafter that does people or faces, but I really like this very 'Beautiful' Elizabeth Bennett image.
