Gifts under £10 - Izzy

I will join in again this week as we have 2 DT members on a break at the moment. I have altered those hearts for a friend as a birthday present. I really enjoyed it, and will order more to make  a "love" one for my daughter's bedroom. It's really pretty once it's finished and very easy to make. 
I used the Four hanging hearts you can find in the altering section (click on the picture to find them online). 

And here's the finished project.

A - I painted the hearts with PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paint (Melted Chocolate) and dried
B - I added a very thin layer of Crackle glaze with a palette knife and dried
C- Added a mix of Vintage Lace and Snowflake paints on top and dried to watch it crackle. The back is painted with the same colour mix
D- Repeat for all hearts

I then painted my chipboard letters (you could die cut some with one of the TH alpha die) with the Melted Chocolate paint and embossed them with Crystal embossing powder.
The hearts were stamped with CI-173 swirls using Archival ink, and I added a few self-adhesive pearls and gems to finish off.

This week again we have a prize draw feature across the blog, newsletter, Facebook and Twitter 
Three vouchers are up for grabs: £25, £20 and £15.   
It’s easy to enter, simply place an order on line with us.  Everyone who places an order between 16th and 22nd November will automatically be entered into the draw and at the close three lucky people will be drawn at random to win the vouchers

See you tomorrow
