Vanilla Sugar 2

Its the first day in february and its time for another Vanilla Sugar challenge. This month, being the month of Love, the challenge is to create a hanging heart....

There are so many different elements on here....I'll try and remember them all....I had some wooden hearts in my stash!! I painted it with Stream dauber, then added picket fence crackle paint, then went over it with stream distress ink and then again with a little black ink....this was then stamped with a couple of large background stamps, one depicting a brickwall and the other one has a sort of sun shape on it....I know, very vague, but, I bought them and they weren't named! Part of the edging has been hi-lighted using a gold krylon pen. The image is off a digi sheet (again don't know where I got it from!!) the words are off another digi sheet! the beads at the bottom were threaded onto a headpin and a small heart charm added at the bottom which was adhered to the bottom of the heart. The heart and butterflies are chipboard and covered with pages from an old book, the edges were inked and a bit of bling attached. The cream shrink plastic saying says:- "live in the moment and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering". I punched a couple of holes using the crop-a-dile and threaded wire thro', adding beads and a cupid charm, and made a hanging hoop. A flower and some punched leaves finish it off.

Pop on over to the Vanilla Sugar blog and see the other gorgeous hearts....
