After the heat and wall to wall hot sunshine of the weekend we are back to our more normal spring temperatures. I think it must be a good 10c cooler today but at least the sun is still shining.
I'm here today to share my 2nd DT post for Country View Challenges where our theme for the month is "Rust". If you missed my first post, where I shared a rusty birthday card you can see it here. For this project I chose another of those inky rusty off cuts and decided to turn it into a rusty heart. I drew a heart on paper
I added more paint
and also added some to my other offcuts.
To add texture to my rusty heart I applied some frantage.
When it had cooled I went over areas of it with metallic Distress paint.
For a background I stamped my old Visible Image Bronte verse script stamp and die layered it up with some die cut card using my Mixed media die by Tim Holtz.
It was then time to put all my elements together. Here is my finished card..which has already sold in Dotty's Tearooms.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;
The Ribbon Girl 3/3 April any card challenge
Thanks so much for stopping by today and remember you have until 30th April to get rusty and join in with the fun over at Country View! This is the link
