This little hanging is entitled Things I love and of course is made using a chipboard heart which is 13 x 13 cms in size.
I have had a load of Lynne Perrella stamps by PaperArtsy and have hardly used them so thought I would select one as the focal point for this project. In fact all stamps are by PaperArtsy.
First I stamped the image in Memento tuxedo black ink onto white cardstock. I then tore the edges and coloured the image with Alcohol ink brush markers in shades of purple and pink. The edges were touched with a gold Posca pen to highlight..
The base heart was covered in a printed paper of distressed letters on black background. I then used more PaperArtsy stamps inked with Versamark ink and heat embossed with 3 different Moonglow embossing powders for a subtle mica finish (best seen with the naked eye).
Once this was done I took two pieces of ribbon, one turquoise grosgrain and one slightly thinner in purple satin. The purple satin ribbon was overstamped with another circular LP stamp and more Memento tuxedo black ink and was stuck onto the turquoise with red line tape. The assembled ribbon band was then stuck in place as shown across the heart.
The heart was then provided with two gold eyelets added with the crop-a-dile and the whole thing edged with more Posca gold pen. The stamped image was then added on foam pads and the word stickers added as shown.
Finishing touches were to add a length of silk sari ribbon and more of the purple ribbon through the eyelets tied in a rough knot to allow it to be hung. Just love the colours on this piece.
