|Hearts and Flowers Box|
I have been playing around with the flowers for a few days now until I arrived at a method that resulted in something that looked like a flower. Eventually I used white card stock, die cut with two separate Sizzix dies and then applied a treatment of water and distress ink.
The heart I made from white polymer clay and imprinted with a floral stamp before baking and colouring with a pale pink paint with iridescent medium, working it well into the grooves. I then over painted with a colour to match the flowers which turned out to be a kind of apricot although the ink was tattered rose (pink)
This is a view of the crackle paint by Viva, I really like the way it cracks. I rubbed the cracks with distress ink to get the ink into the cracks before removing the ink from the surface.
