Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

A quick post this morning as I am off to Port Sunlight for the Happy Stampers show.

Looking forward to catch up with a few of my crafting friends.

Last weekend I managed to get some Paint Fusion done using my new stamps and paint I got before I went away. Oh my I had fun and created this heart.

Step by Step

1. I first painted the MDF heart with brown acrylic paint, once this was dry I then gave it a coat of crackle medium, once this was dry I then painted over with cream paint. As the paint dried it crackled.
2. Using the Chrysanthemum stamp I stamped onto the heart with Stazon.
3. Using Pebeo acrylic paints I painted the leaves and petals, I added a couple more to fill the heart.
4. Stamped the sentiment in London Fog then over stamped in black which gave a nice shadow.
5. To finish off I used Pebeo gilding wax around the edge of the heart, punched a whole in the bottom and added the charm which says "Hope". I then attached pink organza ribbon.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
