The Fragile Heart




Here is a piece I made for a challenge on The Cupboard Trilogy Blog.  The main stamp used in this piece is a cover stamp from Craft Stamper Magazine designed by the late, great Sarah Lawrence of Crafty Notions who passed away very suddenly in December 2011.

The challenge is to design a piece of craft using the cover stamp. 





I have used a box that originally contained Valentine chocolates and have altered it to contain a flower made from the hearts depicted in the stamp. The box was painted with red satin acrylic paint and stamped on the outside with a swirl stamp inked in Stazon Gold.  The three hearts were coloured in Posca gold pen and edged in Posca black fineliner.

The inside of the box was lined with spotty red paper and decorated with a flower made from the heart stamp which had been stamped a number of times in black Archival ink and coloured with barn door Distress ink.  Glossy accents was used to assemble the heart 'petals' finally adding a red glass cabochon as a centre.






The words were printed on the printer and added over another stamped heart on foam pads. Hope this is a fitting tribute in the memory of a great crafting icon !
