This is my latest DT piece for CREATIVE EXPRESSIONS using the Studio 490 Sentimental Art stamps. I also used two corners and a heart from the Studio 490 Artparts.
I started by painting a square piece of mountboard with some emulsion paint, the colour is called Opulence, I also painted the Artpart heart the same colour. I randomly stamped parts of the large background stamp onto the mountboard and stamped the heart with the background stamp. I cut a heart shape out of white card and stamped it with the background stamp using black archival ink. I attached this to the mountboard with some white lace round it's edge. I attached the Artpart heart trying to match the pattern to the white heart, I think this is called spotlight stamping. I painted the Artpart corners black and attached them to the hanging then I added the string of pearls and some flowers from my stash. The sentiment was stamped onto some white card that I'd painted red with the emulsion paint, this was then matted onto some black card and attached to the hanging. The last things that I did was to add some pearls to the flowers and some black cord to hang it with.
