With this week’s theme over at Every Inchie Monday being red, there was one thing I wasn’t going to do and that was hearts as I have used those a lot on various inchies. I had lots of ideas – telephone boxes, pillar box, robins, London buses, The Red Shoes, Little Red Riding Hood… the possibilities were endless. So what do I do? Yep, hearts:
I used Neil Walker’s Alphabet Soup background stamp and heat embossed using white embossing powder. Then I punched out the inchies and coloured them with distress inks. The hearts were cut free hand and I added a little shading with a black Stabilo pencil. The words were printed out on my computer.
I then decided to play some more to create these next two.
The first was made by inking some card with Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap and adding the heart. Then I covered the whole piece with crackle accents. Once dry I rubbed in some more Walnut Stain.
The second was made using some fibre paste mixed with white paint. I pressed the heart into it whilst it was still wet and then left to dry overnight. Next day I flooded the heart with some crackle glaze and when that was dry added a little ink.
So six hearts when I planned none – but you can never have too many hearts, right?!
Thanks for buzzing by.
