Altered Heart

Good Morning Crafters
Today we are sharing a little bit of romance with this beautiful altered heart created by Gill.
Most of the products for this can be found on the Personal Impressions website.

You will need the follow for this project: 

My colours cardstock in Salt Lake and Lilac Mist
Sweet Dixie Dies - Stylised Daisy and Birthday Sentiments
Eleganza Craft stickers
Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Forest Moss
Memento Ink - Sweet Plum
Gesso Primer
Modelling Paste
Tim Holtz Stencil - Burlap
Wooden Heart shape
Step 1
Paint the wooden heart with two coats of Gesso, ensuring the first coat is dry before applying the second.

Once dry and using the stencil and model pasted hold the stencil down firmly and spread the modelling paste over it with a spatula.

Step 2
Lightly brush the stencilled side with the memento ink and stamp the plain half with the chronology stamp (or any stamp of your choice). Distress around the edges. Finally cut out the word Love from the birthday sentiments in white.
Step 3
Using the Sweet Dixie Dies cut out the daisy and leaf elements.  These are super dies and can be used with most die cutting machines they cut beautifully.

Step 4
I used an inking brush to highlight the flower pieces with the Memento ink and the leaves with green moss distress ink.  Once you have done this make up the flowers with glue gel, alternating the colours, add little pearl craft stickers in the middle of each flower.
Step 5 
Arrange the flowers and leaves to one side of the heart and in the top right hand corner add the word LOVE
Step 6
There it is a lovely altered heart to give your loved one.
Thank you for stopping by Today!
