Her Delicate Heart

Hello Everyone
It has been too long since I last shared a DT sample for The Stampsmith.  This is a canvas I altered at the start of the year, turning to my ever faithful Ophelia.  There are several versions of Ophelia, the one used on this canvas is the medium size version.
DIGITAL CAMERAOphelia was stamped onto painted cardstock then layered with an epoxy frame. DIGITAL CAMERATo the canvas I applied layers of paint and created a frame with Tissue Tape with the addition of torn lace which had previously been stained with tea bags it creates a romantic backdrop for the corrugated heart which is adorned with seam binding stained the same colour as the lace and the addition of three MOP heart shaped buttons. DIGITAL CAMERAA corner embellishment that matches the epoxy frame. DIGITAL CAMERAThe February Stampsmith Challenge is well underway now. All details on the challenge theme, rules and prize are available at TSC Blog and you can also see the team’s samples on display.
Thank You for taking the time to visit this post especially if you visited earlier in the day.

    Such a beautifully romantic piece you have created in all the most beautiful softness in pinks. This stamp is one of my favourites too! I love the way you have created the corrigated heart!
    Just wondered dear friend if you had an answer to the use of the rubber scrolls?
    Hope you have a very pleasant Sunday dear Lynne,
    Sending warm hugs to you,
