I’ll give you my heart

We are closing up to a period of the year when caring about each other, when listening to each other and when spending some quality time together is so important. What we need is to open our heart. Each one of us is capable of it, if we stop the rushing for one minute, put off the “changing the world plans” for a couple of hours, let our family and friends come into our spotlight.

At Stampotique designers challenge Arwen asked us to put one detail of our piece in the spotlight so here I am presenting you my heart in a Stampotique way:

Of course a work is consisting of many parts, you can join me to walk through some of the details. My background is a piece of a canvas from Canvas Corp Brands, that I stamped with garden blockย #9061 and colorised with Tattered Angels Glimmer mists (Walnut Gold and Bronze). On the burlap I used Sunflower.

I distressed a piece of paper with antique linen and walnut stain, stamped on it with Daniel’s hearts #6109, finally I sewed my pieces together to one tag.

Miguel #6173 was stamped on scrap colorised with the same Sunflower like the burlap piece.

To emphasise the action of giving I double stamp the present and used hearts cubed #3003 with red archival ink for ‘my heart’. I also added thin metallic thread around the present that holds my heart.

At the top I added some altered washers to hold my rope.

And at the bottom I added an altered found objectย as embellishment.

Hope you will accept my present that comesย out of my heart:
