7 of Hearts - Remastered by Amanda Pink

11:00

Hi Everyone

Welcome to my Thursday weekly post.
This week I have been dabbling with a little paper crafting. Its something I don't often do so I 
 enjoyed changing things up a bit. I have used 13Art Papers along with some of my own embellishing touches to create a piece of 'postcard art' to share with you today.


The panel itself is a That's Crafty! White/Greyboard surface - postcard size (square corners). I think this is my new favourite size to work on so I'm sure I'll be sharing more postcard art in the coming weeks.
I worked with His and Hers Remastered papers by 13Arts. The papers are available from the shop along with a range of other 13Arts paper designs each of them gorgeous, good quality and very affordable.
As well as covering the postcard with paper I also cut and covered a few lengths of greyboard from offcuts  I had left over from previous project. All sides of  the covered pieces of greyboard and postcard are sanded and caught with paint. I built up the overall design placing a couple of the smaller 'pieces' in two of the opposing panel corners


 and stacking two of the longer lengths on top of each other along the middle of the postcard.
I also painted a couple of pieces of thin dowel and tucked then into the small gaps between the postcard and the focal feature....


... which is made up of a That's Crafty! MDF heart treated with grit paste and acrylic paint.


and a smaller paper covered That's Crafty! White/Greyboard heart, both of which are mounted onto a kraft card heart shaped mount


To finish the design I embellished at various points with doubled up eyelets and mounted the postcard onto a piece of black cardstock cut to size.
The layered elements help give the finished postcard good dimension.

  2. Completely scrumptious, Amanda... like you, I often forget how effective design papers can be, and you've certainly shown them off beautifully here. Your monochrome patchwork strips look just amazing.
