Hearts and Flowers

A gesture for Valentines day or a sign for a home full of love
I painted the wooden plaque in red acrylic paint and stamped in black ink  To add texture I spread some modge-podge through sequin waste and when dry I used Treasure brass paste to highlight
The small wooden heart is painted with gold metallic paint and stamped in black then decorated with a hessian tag and fabric flowers All the products are available from Calico Crafts
