It’s In Your Heart, To Live For Today

Not so long ago, Crafty Individuals released new stamps, amongst them  CI-468., which can be used to stamp a block of various sentiments/words, useful for creating speedy backgrounds but you can also zoom into particular sentiments to make them the focal of your project.  That’s what I decided to do for this heart.
The heart itself is ceramic, lovely and smooth but for someone who likes texture, it had to get the rusty, dusty treatment!
Live for Today was stamped onto fabric scrap which had previously been stained.
Layered onto corrugated cardboard heightens the textural elements with scraps of beautiful re-cycled waste silk sari ribbon.  I didn’t stain the sari ribbon, it is a beautiful oxblood colour.
Layered beneath the sentiment are three Bohemian Jewels.  They are from RELICS & ARTIFACTS and were just the perfect something to add.  They are available in various colours, you can view them HERE.
RELICS & ARTIFACTS Dresden Trim is what I edged the heart with, of course, also giving this the rusty treatment.  You can view the full range of Dresden Trim HERE.

    This is wonderful! Love how you picked out the sentiment from the fabulous stamp sheet. I am going to do the same with these sentiments as well as using it for a background. xxx

    Oh my goodness! What a feast for the eyes and the senses. Looking at all the textures on this make my fingers tingle! You have dished out a smorgasbord of textures. How super that the sari ribbon was such a rich ox blood to compliment the rust. Thank you for sharing, Lynne. Cheers, inkybru xx
