Home Is Where The Heart Is

Louise’s theme at Tag Tuesday is Hearts. My first thoughts were Parisian, vintage couples, etc but it was time for a change so used a Crafty Individuals stamp as the main image.

It is a larger stamp than this but I only wanted the bird and her birdhouse which also has hearts on it.

The tag was coloured with Distress Inks using a duster brush and three colours of Crackle paint to edge the tag. The main stamp and the linked hearts (part of another CI stamp) were stamped onto paper I had made some time ago (using emulsion paint, Gesso and walnut ink)

When stamping on this paper it creates a look that is a bit shabby and distressed.  I cut out another heart and layered it using silicone glue for dimension.

Script stamp from Prima and “Home” stamped with Studio G alphabet stamps.
