Glittery Hearts

It's wednesday again and that means it is my turn to spotlight my work on the Whimsical Ink Sorority Blog for Queen Kat Designs and I like to show my project on here too for my regular visitors.

The QKD DT this week are working with some of the 'older' QKD stamps and I decided to use the 'Hearts On My Sleeves' mermaid as I haven't worked with her for a while.

Just for a change I thought I'd use decoupage on my project.  I stamped and coloured three images and then cut each layer out with a set of nestabilities oval large scallop dies.  Making each layer smaller than the one below and attaching them with silicone glue, created a sort of pyramage effect.
The layers can be seen more clearly in the close up picture below.

The background paper was from my stash and I 'blinged it up' by drawing round the flowers with Crystal Stickles (although this doesn't show up too well in the picture).  I punched out swirls with a couple of EK Success punches and added Stickles to these too.  Finally I added Stickles round the edge of the bottom image layer.

This gorgeous big light coffee colour rose is from Wild Orchid Crafts and the small cream roses were in my stash.

I think the pale pastel shades work well with this gorgeous image and I love all the glitter!

The 40% off stamps sale in the QKD Store ends today, so you'll have to hurry if you want to grab these fabulous girls for your own stamp stash!

Thanks for visiting and I hope you'll be back soon as I have lots of new projects to share with you.
