I chose the topic of "Hearts " for our June challenge over on Country View Crafts. It provides lots of scope for creative ideas.
I began by recycling a hair product bag. As you can see, I left the recycling notice visible as I think that it adds to the rustic feel.
Next, using my Sizzix Hearts die, I cut lots of different sizes using manuscript paper and corrugated card. I brushed the edges of the hearts with good old Vintage Photo distress ink.The background manuscript is really old and has luscious age spots on it....no fakery there!
I used some Dina Wakley stamps along the top of the bag and in the centre of the arrangement of hearts.
To finish off, I put some manuscript paper through my shredder to create ribbons, which I curled with my scissors.
I couldn't resist taking a photo of it sitting amongst my glorious Wisteria.
I hope that you get some inspiration from my creation and from the other members of the CVC team. Don't forget to pop over and have a look.
