Key to Your Heart



This little chipboard heart is the basis for this 'Key to Your Heart' creation.  I started by covering the heart in paper from the Tilda Kitchen Garden 12 x 12 inch pad.  Once adhered to the heart it was trimmed out, sanded and edged with lilac posies Memento ink.

I then used some diecuts to build up the design, an open heart (stamped with more Memento ink - Paper Artsy), a gold heart  and two layered flowers.




More Memento ink was used to colour tint each piece before assembling as shown.  The metal key was tied through with some fine maroon grosgrain ribbon before sticking in place over the gold heart.





A pale pink pearl was added in the centre of the flower.




Finishing touches were to add a sentiment plate and edge exposed edges of the heart with pink Stickles glitter glue.

This piece will fit the bill for the City Crafter Challenge Blog challenge for this week which is the same as my blog post title too.
