|Rattan Heart created for the Creative Embellishments February Challenge|
Over on the Creative Embellishments Blog the February Challenge was a color challenge, and this heart is what I came up with!
To color the rattan heart I used three different sprays, Shimmerz “Pretty In Pink” and “Sweetheart,” and I watered down the “Rose-Gold” Prima paint to make the third spray. After they were dry I had to add some lace…because Creative Embellishments had it as a twist, and I’m not one to “skip” on twists!
It was after I had the lace on I decided to add make the inner and outer edges a bit darker with the “Rose Gold” Icing Paste!
After that is was a matter of arranging the flowers and working in the chipboard from Creative Embellishments!
For the Corner Flourish 4 (which has been cut apart) I put on a coat of white gesso, sprayed it with Shimmerz “Ruby”…twice, then I put on a layer of “Aged Mahogany” Distress Oxide and spritzed it with water! The berries were just coated in a layer of “Rustic Brown” paint, no gesso, because I wanted the paint to soak in some to “dull” it a little.
