Heart hanging

Don't faint but post number 3 coming up!! This second challenge over at paper artsy has everyone reaching for their crafty supplies..My 3rd piece is a heart hanging.

I started off with a heart from some bunting I picked up cheap in sainsburys. I painted in little black dress..a coat of crackle glaze then when that was dry a coat of vintage lace. I wiped some of the paint off before it was completely dry.
 I then painted some claret and london bus over the top again wiping it back before it dried properly.

I stamped a mini stamp in black archival and then added 3 coats of embossing enamel over the top..I dropping some tiny silver beads onto it before the last coat cooled. Added some black ribbon and finished. the photo doesn't do it justice..it is really lovely and shiney..bringing out the cracks and stamping.

Thanks for stopping by................................

  4. Ooh gorgeous Lin! I got a better look at the cracks by clicking on the pic but not the shine. Nevermind I can tell it's really beautiful and fab interpretation of Leandra's demo.
