Flourishes,lc Endearing Heart Frame

Hello friends, I hope your week has been a good one - so far.  Mine has been busy - too busy in some ways but not all deadlines - I am preparing for my Mother's visit from New Zealand tomorrow night, our grandsons 2nd birthday on Thursday and his party on Saturday - which is at our home.  My Mother-in-Law and a family friend are arriving on Saturday for the party and leaving Monday morning and my Mum departs Wednesday morning and as you can imagine lots of family activities in between,  But in the meantime I have a project to share with you...a little Mixed Media! 

The Flourishes,lc Endearing Rose has been stamped onto Flourishes Classic White card stock using black ink and coloured using Chameleon Pens.  It has been fussy cut/hand cut using scissors, the rose head and the leaves have been popped up, using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares inside the Florentine Frame that has been stamped onto white card stock, coloured using Chameleon Pens.  It has been fussy cut/hand cut using scissors, The layered image has been popped up onto the Harlequin background that has been stamped using Imagine Memento ink in Bamboo Leaves.

DecoArt Crackle Medium has been added to the white card stock, thickly in the corners - the thicker the paste the more crackle - within reason of course!  The cracks appears as it drys, leaving such a great effect!

Part of the sentiment has been created using stickers that have been sponged around and once stuck on had a coat of Dimensional Magic applied - such a great effect.  The Believe sentiment is metal and was originally pink, but I coloured it using a Chameleon Pen RD3 Vermilion and then sponged over it using Imagine StazOn ink in Claret.  Finishing off with a strip of recycled corrugated card stock and popping it onto a frame - the guilded gold frame worked well for the look I was wanting to achieve.
