Follow Your Heart by Amanda Southern

Hi Everyone

I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas and received lots of
crafty goodies for Christmas.

Today I have a tag to share with you made with one of the new That’s Crafty! MDF tags.

Here’s what I did:- 


I first applied a thin layer of gesso to the MDF tag, once dried I added a combination of acrylic paints blending each colour whilst the paint was still wet. Once the paint was dry I stamped the heart stamp with black Archival ink. I then stencilled the arrows using crimson Archival ink and cut and dry foam through one of the That’s Crafty! Dinky stencils. I then stamped the heart again onto white paper and cut out the heart and laid over the previously stamped image adhering with matt medium. I then coloured the heart using Spectrum Noir pencils. Finally I added the sentiment, again stamped in black Archival ink and a few splatters of red ink.

What I used:- 


Archival Inks – Crimson & Black
I have only managed a quick crafty play over Christmas so hope you like it.

Can I also take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy New Year and here’s to a crafty year ahead.
