I {heart} Christmas

I had a play with something different for a very special friend who I think is the biggest fan of Christmas on this planet.  Seriously!  She has thousands of ornaments from all over the world so I wanted to make her something that I know she won’t already have.



Lots of delicious Wild Orchid Crafts products were used: Trellis Rose, Cottage Rose, Open Roses 15mm and 20mm, white cabochon angel, gold bells, white stamens.  I dabbed white paint on to the flowers using a small piece of sponge (much more controlled than using a paintbrush) then once dry slathered on Mercury Glass Stickles.



The edges were painted with gold paint before I adhered the paper on then once dry the edges were inked and glittered.




My lovely hubby bent some brass tubing into ‘S’ shapes so I could join the hearts together




I bought the hearts from my local craft shop but I would think you could cut them quite easily from chipboard or mount board.  I covered the front and back of each heart with Bo Bunny paper.



I had such fun making this and it only took a couple of hours to do.
