I thought I'd share two mdf hearts I've altered .
The first one was covered using scrapbook paper . I added some foam letters , A wooden embellishment & added a Prima flower in the middle.
I wanted to keep it quite simple & not go over the top with it.
 My second heart is slightly different .
I used very berry& pumpkin soup  acrylic paint from paperartsy . I also used the paperartsy crackle finish as well.
The leaves & the heart I cut using sizzix dies & edge the hearts with white paint.
A Tim Holtzs ticket & flower & a brad I've used.

Post Card Swap

Here's my entry for this months post card swap on
Sam sets the theme each month & this month the them was Panto.
This is my take on the theme.
My back ground was done using Paperartsy Acrylic paints, Guacamole & plum.
I then stamped over this a Tim Holtzs stamp with tickets on.
For my theatre curtains I used a dylusion boarder stamp & painted it with the  Guacamole paint.
The mad hatter is another stamp I had.

My two atc's for a swap at my local craft club. the theme for this month was love /hearts.
My back ground was made using black embossing powder which at first didn't look right so I lighten it up with yellow & gold acrylic paint. The hearts were cut using some cardboard packaging .
The cherub is a little sizzix die I have.
