I started by removing the piece of string and wooden bead, sanded the heart slightly and then gave it a coat of Vanilla Fresco Finish paint.
I painted random areas with Chocolate Pudding Fresco Finish as this is where I'm going to add the Crackle Glaze.
Once the Crackle Glaze was dry I then painted over the top with Vanilla FF again. The darker colour shows through the cracks in the paint.
I then used Claret FF and a babywipe and wiped the paint over the heart. I still wanted the lighter colour to show through so I wiped the paint away in sections of it.
I then added some Little Black Dress FF to the Claret and used some Cut 'n' Dry foam and went around the edges.
I then used the Mini Swirly Vine stencil and mixed some Claret FF with some Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste.
I then used the background stamp from the Wendy Vecchi Nature's Art set using Plum Archival ink and stamped onto some twill ribbon.
I painted two Maya Road wooden buttons with Vanille FF, dried them and stamped them with the same Wendy Vecchi background stamp using Plum Archival ink.
I rubbed some Plum Archival and black Archival around the edge of the card too to give it some definition against the background.
To finish off I added two more buttons to the back of the heart which covered the join in the ribbon.
Right, all I need to do is post it now !
I'm also entering this project into the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge which is Say it with Stamps.
