Challenge 17 over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and we would like  you follow a line from our Bingo Card.
Choose a line, vertical, horizontal or diagonal,  we have had real fun with this one.
Please pop over for all the details and see what we have been making. Remember we like to see your stamping.

Once again I chose to make a small hanging. My line is diagonal, it includes Words, Distressing and Flowers.

After cutting the  heart shape, I used a Sheena Douglas topper to cover the surface.
Then it was lightly coated with cream acrylic paint and when dry shaded with  Antique Linen  with a little stormy sky  distress ink on the edge.
I then went round all  the shape with antique gold heat  embossing powder.
For the daisies I   used  stamps from Sheena's Paint Fusion Daisy set.
These were water coloured and topped with a pearlescent  cosmic shimmer paint, before cutting out.
Much easier this way as you can go over the outlines without spoiling your work.
The words are from a Studio 490 stamp set. Just right for the promises of Spring.

Challenge  21   at Lets Ink It Up  is 'Show us your flowers'. I hope these daisies will fit the theme, the are starting to show their pretty heads everywhere they shouldn't in my garden.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate you calling.
