A Grateful Heart

It's February and time for another challenge at The Blank Page Muse Stamps blog!  This month's theme is Blue Heart & Time.  The challenge goes live on 10 Feb and runs through 8 Mar so get your thinking caps on and enter!

For this challenge, I've made a mixed media canvas with a slightly different twist for the blue heart portion.

Supplies Used:

The Blank Page Muse Stamps: Pocket Watch with Flowers
The Blank Page Muse Stamps:  Love of Butterflies
Black & Teal Embossing Powders
Silver & Turquoise Waxes
Resin Heart
Embossing Pad
Stabilo Black Pencil
Black Gesso
Art Panel
E6000 glue
Tim Holtz sayings

1.  Rub the embossing pad all over the art panel and emboss it with the blue. Some spots of panel showing through is a plus.

2. Next, paint the heart with black gesso. Then, stamp it with the butterfly stamp using the embossing pad & blue powder.

3. The final stage before pulling it all together is embossing the watch stamp with black on top of the embossed panel. Extra powder here and there is a must!

4. Add the waxes around the heart before gluing it onto the panel. Add black pencil around the panel edges and around the heart. 

So now it's your turn - what will you create?  Come check out what my other DT pals have created for inspiration.  Share your lovelies at the blog on 10 February and on our Blank Page Muse Stamps Fan Group !
