Another heart - F

but this time it is a prezzie for a friend who is moving this coming week - well it is my mate who is leader of the Purple team - she has been otherwise occupied for a while but will be back in the near future.

I simply covered a 6inch heart with paper, stamped out my fav poppy stamp - coloured it all in sepia tones using my copics and prismas.  I then wiped scattered straw DI over it.  I cut into 4 and layered onto kraft card, distressed the edges and wiped brushed corduroy round the edges.  I placed them on the heart and painted over the top using glossy accents.  The letters were stamped and wiped using the same DI - they too were mounted and painted.  I used twine between the cut image and stuck a fence across the botton.  This has been inked up also.

Thats it really all done!

Sorry for the amount of pics and the cracked effect overlay - my photo programme playing up a bit (mind you I quite like it lol)







Hugz and love to you all
