Love heart

For this project I have used a lovely new Indigo blu stamp.  i thought this would make a pretty wedding keepsake, an alternative to a horseshoe.

 

I began by painting a heart blank with Gesso and then Distress Paint in Bundled Sage.  The image was stamped with Archival.

I made some flowers from gold parchment paper and spritzed them and some cream ribbon with Perfect Pearls, Heirloom Gold.






I coloured the image with Derwent Inktense Water Colour pencils and a water brush, I was feeling a bit lazy and didn't want to fill a water pot and get a brush out!













The heart was distressed with brushed corduroy and some wax was added to that and the flourish.

I am entering this project into the following challenges:-
