Heart Inspired by France Papillon

This week PaperArtsy celebrate their 10th Anniversary with a different guest designer each day. There sure is a lot of love over on the site with a number of gorgeous hearts up-loaded already. I did try to use my chain to leave an impression similar to France but I think the links were too small, so I've left it place instead.
The flower is especially for Leandra, she'll know why ! lol

Arched Doorway

As soon as I saw Sue Carrington's doorway I knew I wanted to make something similar - but as I don't have a die I made a quick template from images in Excel and cut the front and back from a pizza box. I also didn't have a brick mask so improvised again by cutting my own bricks from card. I've used Nougat as the base coat on the front along with Tinned Peas and Hey Pesto. The inside had a base coat of Pansy, crackle glaze and Nougat on top. (I'm officially addicted to crackle glaze - it fab how it works so well every time, unlike other products I've tried). The JOFY flowers were stamped onto tissue and coloured with promarkers before being applied with multi-medium. I had real fun making this project and will try something similar another time - it's a great way to try out techniques and use different stamps.
