Listen to your Heart



'Hearts and Flowers', is our first challenge of the year over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.
Please pop over to see what my design team sisters have been making and get all the details, including the generous prize offered by Flonz Crafts.


This time, I  decided to make a small hanging. There is always bits of old packaging in my craft room, this corrogated piece was painted with acrylics and sprayed with  a little gold mica spray.
The next layer was another left over piece that had been dry embossed in a rose Embossalicious folder.
Both the heart and wording  stamps I used were from  a  Wendy Vecchi-Studio 490 set. . I used a Cosmic Shimmer green,  heat  embossing powder for them both. All the extra shading was Bundled Sage and Antique Linen distress ink. Trimmings all came from my stash.

I hope to share this with
 Ali-Craft, - monthly challenge #8 is Anything Goes
The Artistic Stamper -January Challenge- Love is in the Air

Thank you for stopping by, I do always appreciate your comments.
