Have a Heart


The background of the mdf heart was firstly painted in snowflake fresco paint, then coloured with beach hut and limelight.  Sky, green olives and south pacific were also used randomly.

The AJ image was stamped in black archival ink, masked off and other AJ images were stamped in various colours of distress ink, mowed lawn, crushed olive, evergreen bough, broken china, peacock feathers and salty ocean.  The words were stamped in black archival and co-ordinating fibres added.

This months AJ theme is shades of blue and green.  I haven't joined in for a while as my stamps haven't fitted in, but as this months is a colour theme I thought I'd play along.

Alison is asking for words, words and more words over at the Our Creative Corner Challenge, so this fits in perfectly.
