I promised you I would be back with the second of my projects that I made for the new challenge, “Warms the Heart,” over at My Artistic Adventures.
First I painted the spool with a thin layer of white paint, covered the core with the hearts paper and then applied crochet lace around the top and bottom edge. I used some gauze to cover the top of the spool, pulling at the threads so it was nice an wispy, a bit like a cloud.
The cupid is layered onto some sturdy card stock and then glittered with gold.
Then I’ve scattered more glitter and some tiny gold stars.
I’ve gone overboard with little pink paper roses and sweetheart blossoms and tucked in the conversation hearts here and there.
A little pink bow tops it all off. As well as making a great piece of Valentine décor, this would also look good as a cake topper – chocolate I think!!!
Thanks for buzzing by.
