home is where the *heart shaped hanging* is...

a super sweet project from me this weekend...a decorated blank {i think it was by Tando?}...the hearts were stamped with one of Tim's divine stamps, embossed in black...then swiped with gold acrylic paint and swiped with a near~dry baby wipe...the letters were painted with gold acrylic, then smothered in a mix of distress and glitz stickles...and smooshed with my fingers...then i added a little bit of trim to underline each letter...finally...a few beads and a length of cord...and its done!
his Nibs has already decided where its to go...and put it there...handy really...as i designed it for just that spot...but no need to tell him that, right? they like to think they are in control, eh? ;0)
happy today xx
