Love and Hearts- Fiona.

Morning all Fiona Here with a Love and Hearts themed Artist Trading Block.
I die cut the block with Tando Grey Board and assembled. Embossed wood grain watercolour cardstock was given a wash of media fluid acrylic then the grain texture highlighted with a distress crayon and then cut to size and attached to all four sides and top of the cube. Tando Grey board Hearts and the Faceted Heart die once assembled were then Given the Rusty treatment with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics in Paynes Grey and Quinacrodone Gold Then edged with a black Archival Ink Pad. The Hearts were then attached to sturdy Florists wire of Varying lengths before being inseted into the block. Hemp Twine was then wound around the wires and finished with a bow with ends frayed for a rustic feel. The base was created by using two Tando Grey Board circles attached to a piece of cardboard tubing cut to size to create a bobbin. This was then painted with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic in Raw Umber and Hemp Twine wound around the bobbin before gluing to the cube. To finish Scrabble Tiles were edged in Potting Soil Archival Ink and then attached in place on the block.
Close Up Detail.
