Let Your Beautiful Heart by Dorthe Hansen

11:00


Dear friends, I think it is ok, to totally go Christmas now, lol. So here is my Monday blog piece.







Using one of That’s Crafty’s white/greyboard panels, I adhered a piece of textured gold “plastic” which had been around a package I got and onto that I stenciled a piece of the Poinsettia stencil with the heart turning upwards in the corner. I found out it was a bit tricky as this material is pure plastic-like and therefore the texture paste does not fasten well, and is prone to run off.

But I left it and when dry, painted the wonderful Metallic Antique Gold onto the stenciled area.

I painted a piece of craft paper, with a mix of White and Christmas Red paint, aiming for a strong pink tone - also some old lace scrap, was painted and the heart in the right corner of the card too.






After it had dried, I stamped the text from Textures Stamp Set 1 onto the paper and cut out a piece, big enough to hold the sweet siblings from Tim Holz Christmas Collection. I added white paint and texture paste to the perimeter and onto the texture paste while wet, I sprinkled mini art stones.

The children were adhered and the whole piece adhered to the background, adding a tiny piece of the text stamped pink paper under it, to stick out in one side.

3 beautiful snowflakes were also painted with the pink mix and on top I smeared a bit of texture paste here and there, added the mini stones and a bit of silvery glitter too.







The lace stamp  from  new Textures Collection Stamp Set 3, was stamped onto another piece of craft paper,  first painted with a lighter mix of Christmas Red and White and fussy cut to be adhered to the bottom panel.







Also another tiny square of the stamped paper, was adhered under the Affirmation and lastly a very old scrap of nylon lace went under the siblings, to give an illusion of snow and winter there, together with a thin frame, created with texture paste, around 3 sides of the panel.

If you followed me to the end, I’m saying thank you very much. Being on the team, and having visits and also comments is just wonderful.

Hugs and love 

Dorthe

  1. I think you have worked wonders with that recycled plastic Dorthe, the stencilling is clearly visible and looks so rustic with it's little imperfections. Your mixed pink gives a touch of shabby chic, with matched sentiment to the heart shining through in the corner. That beautiful lace finishing it all off so so delicately.
