Vintage floral heart

Hello lovely people,

This past week I have not got a huge amount done, mainly because I have been glued to the Paralympics any chance I get; what amazing athletes and so many fantastically exciting events to watch.  Team GB also seem to be doing pretty well ;-)


I did drag myself away though to tell you about the new challenge at In The Pink and this time we have a photo inspiration for you...


There's loads to inspire you here from the gorgeous vintage style to all the pretty embellishments but don't forget we want to see more pink than any other colour!

Our fabulous sponsor this time is Live and Love Crafts with a £10 voucher

I finally got around to decorating another MDF heart and it's just a dinky one at approximately 8cm square.  I painted just around the edges with white acrylic paint, then covered both the front and back with DP, sanded the edges and sponged a little ink round it.

I did the sentiment on my computer, using a well known quote and mixing up 2 fonts for what I hoped was a stylish look!

I cut all the flowers on my Cricut, so I could make lots of different sizes for variety, and of course, I had to add some pretty pearls and lace :-)

This is so pretty Kat and would grace any wall! And those fonts certainly look stylish.. but I know what you mean about mixing them - difficult to get it just right!!

I have some MDF shapes lurking in one of my cupboards - I really must dig them out and give them a go before I get into trouble with Debs for leaving my Mod Podge to go hard!! hehe

Hi Kat, I absolutely love this heart. You are fab! The gorgeous combination of colours, papers, flowers, font and embellishments look totally exquisite. You have a wonderful eye for detail and you have put everything together perfectly - I know for a fact that the our lovely friend who received this gift absolutely adores it.
It was lovely to see you on Wednesday - what a fab day we had! I am completely in love with crackle technique now! - and big apologies over the MISTI mystery!...xxx
