Distressed heart ...

Good afternoon!  It's unusual for me to be here on a Monday afternoon but this week is half term holidays for the schools and as I work in a school office that means that I'm on holiday for a week!  More time for crafting (and housework?) and spending time just chilling!

For those of you that follow my blog or popped by on Sunday for a visit will know that I had a lot of trouble creating a one layer card involving an embossed heart (here).  This card has been created using the heart that I inadvertently cut out of the card yesterday turning the disaster into a "happy little accident".

From one layer to mulitple layers - old book paper, natural hessian, cream hessian, ink splodges, card stock, and a metal button along with the stamped, coloured and embossed heart!! In fact there is nothing one layered about this!

I'm going to enter the challenge at Mixed Media Card Challenge blog

and the STAMPlorations monthly challenge



  1. Just love the burlap and old book page combo! Absolutely gorgeous.

  2. Gorgeous Elaine. I'm glad you were able to use your cut heart ... it's so beautiful paired with the burlap ribbon ... love the texture! Thanks for playing along at Mixed Media Card Challenge. xx

  3. I love the way you've decorated that heart by stamping and stenciling. Great details, beautiful card! Thanks for joining us at STAMPlorations!

  4. Gorgeous distress inking heart! And love all the element you've used. Thank you for sharing at STAMPlorations.

  5. Glad you were able to put your cut out heart to good use! Love the splatters in the background :) Thanks for playing along at The Mixed Media Card Challenge and STAMPlorations!

  6. Beautifully texture-y and dimensional, Elaine ... a gorgeous heart and such wonderful detailing! Enjoy the extra craft time! Anita :)

  7. You turned this into a brilliant work of card art, Elaine! I love every little detail and love staring at it. In fact, I'm pinning it!! Have a wonderful weekend!! Hugs, Darnell
