There's a new challenge @ 7 Dots Studio all about HEARTS. And you should really stop by to see all the wonderful projects by the talented design team. One of my favorite things about designing paper for 7 Dots Studio is seeing all that talent USE the paper :)
To inspire you I've altered a paper mache heart I picked up from Joann. It was so cute in the $1 bin, and I thought it was perfect for the season of love :)
The base has been dry brushed with Gesso and a pink color of Acrylic paint. I heat set the paints then stamped the invoice piece from Thoughts Keeper's Acrylic stamps in archival ink. It helped create a nice grounded background for layering on.
Then I layered up and embellished some pink, gray and cream pretties including a Destination Unknown Tag, a Soulmates Sticker Element and a sticker from the Soulmates words from 7 Dots Studio. I also used a diecut heart from an old atlas cut by Sizzix / Tim Holtz mover n shaper die, some May Arts Ribbons, a pink button and a beautiful Prima Marketing flower.
