Heart Art

Hi all

Here is my latest post for The Artistic Stamper Challenge.  The topic this month is Heart Art and we are all looking forward to seeing you creations with Heart stamps.

All the paint i used on this project was Paperartsy and as most of the warmer colours are translucent colours I mixed a tiny bit of Snowflake with Postbox red to take away the translucency.
 As you can see i used a tiny amount of white paint but quite a bit of the red, now it will go lighter to start with red and white make pink so just keep mixing it until you have the colour you are after
 This was after two coats so giving a reasonable coverage now at this point i stamped the heart background in black archival on top of the red.
But it wouldnt be one of my posts without missing a photo now would it lol!  After the ink had dried i added a very thin layer of crackle glaze left this to try and then added Chalk over the top and then dried

 As you can see it crackles really nicely and i was really pleased with the effect i had achieved with the heart background!
I stamped in versamark the solid heart from Roses are red plate and embossed with gold Wow embossing powder.  These looked rather flat once dry so i added some grungepaste through the swirl mask and then popped some embossing powder over the top and left the paste to dry. 

This really does need the paste to dry before heating the embossing powder, you can do it earlier but you don't get quite as good effect as you do when you leave it

 I did the same on another heart 
 I also did the same technique with Love from the word mask
Left to dry then heat embossed  I also stamped and embossed the small heart border, again from the Roses are red plate and cut them all out

I added some ground espresso through the swirl masks and also around the edge of the card and the hearts

Thanks for popping by and don't forget to let me know your thoughts and add your entry to the blog

Happy Crafting
