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:-
