Valentine Hanging

Hi all, I'm going to be on time this week for once lol, it's time for another challenge over atThat Craft Place Challenge Blog the theme being for your valentine/love also we are having a DT call how exciting is that :-).
I shall be showing lots of pictures as it's the only way I can really show you the texture of each heart, I started off with a Tando Heart Wreath.
I would like to enter my creation into the following challenges
        Frilly and Funky Challenge - Lacy hearts (lace flower and lots of hearts)
        Simon says stamp and show challenge - Get Messy - I used UTEE, sprays, and lots more lol
        Tando Creative Challenge - Valentines day I used Tando heart wreath

I shall work through what I did as I show you the close ups :-)
I really really enjoyed doing this, it was so much fun doing lots
of techniques on little hearts :-)

For the heart I used patterned music paper, then painted red
with a translucent paint, then did some flicking with black paint. The little
heart is texture past adding bumps, then painted, then added inka gold on top.
The heart was hanged by some chain, then beads wrapped with
metal added to the chain

Ok, where do I start lol, middle heart, felt with inka gold, then the
x was the same as the heart above.  Lace made into a flower with beads, then
sprayed with red.  The adore x was painted, then covered with 
crackle paint, then dylusion spray black on top, the heart on it
is red clay, stamped with text, then inka gold on top.
The romance heart was covered in cheese cloth, then painted, then inka 
gold on top.

The hug x was another fimo heart with crackle stamp and the x underneath
was the same as the heart with texture paste.
The lovers heart was the same as above, crackle painted and then the
heart underneath is lots of  UTEE with different embossing powder colours
and inka gold around the edges.

The main heart wreath was painted both sides, then lots of 
Tim Holtz tissue scrunched up and modpodged on, then
modpodge on top, next step is lots of red sprays, when dried
inka gold on top with little gems

Closer look, the little heart with cherub on top was embossing powders and UTEE

I so wish you could feel the texture lol

Right I shall be off, a few jobs to do then some crafting later on in the day, sounds bliss lol.  Recipe of the products I used are below and you can purchase the items from That Craft Place Shop.
Hope you have a crafty Sunday.
Lots of hugs
