Sometimes we can overlook what were favourite items because our head is turned by newer ones. This has happened to me with the arrival of That’s Crafty Uprights! I decided it was time to play with some of my older favourite substrates, so I used one of the white/greyboard hearts.
Initially I thought of a Valentine related project but I was keen to ink up some new PaperArtsy Lynne Perrella Collecton stamps.
That’s Crafty! Surfaces White/Greyboard Heart (largest size)
PaperArtsy Lynne Perrella Collection – LPC036 and 037
Extras:- Mop-up and under papers, calico, Prima Velveteen Flower (from Relics & Artifacts range), vintage button, corrugated cardboard, black thread
After applying Gesso to heart, apply The Sage and Violet Storms Infusions, misting generously with water. Leave to dry naturally. When dry, partially ink up the main focal stamp (from LPC03), stamping the decorative heart element, repeatedly onto the substrate. Lay aside.
I always have under paper when working on projects, this is what I stamped the focal onto. Stamp the decorative edge from the largest stamp from the LPC037 set. Layer to the heart with scraps of painted corrugated cardboard, Infusions stained calico and mop up paper.
Stamp text from EAA04 onto another piece of under paper. Tear into two small pieces. Layer to the focal image, adding a button to one piece.
Embellish focal stamp with a velveteen flower.
Until next week,
