Crafting When We Can Challenges 112 - Add hearts - half way post

We have a new sponsor over at Crafting When We Can Challenges.  The wonderful Sami from 
Sami Stamps

Theme: add hearts

I chose Little Cloud Angel and as soon as I saw her I knew what I wanted to do.  My friend Gina, who is a wonderful mixed media artist is always trying to get me to get my fingers messy.  I don't like messy fingers but on this occasion I could find no other way to make my project.

Firstly I bought a canvas and paints from Home Bargains and then proceeded to use baby wipes to make a background on the canvas (very messy fingers Gina).  I then printed the image onto A3 paper and painted it.  I'm not really good a painting so no shading but I tried to make the wings look colourful.  The image had 3 hearts dangling from it at various lengths but I cut them off and replaced them with 4 pegged, padded hearts bought from the Range.  As you can see from the picture below I made this for my daughter to use to keep her gig and train tickets safe and where she can find them.

You still have until Saturday 20th to join in the challenge.  Hop over to the blog to get loads of inspiration from our wonderful DT.  CWWCC 112.
