April Colour Theme- Grunge Heart Plaque.

Good Morning. This months Colour theme is this.
I decided to create a Grungy Heart Plaque.
I applied DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics with a brayer onto the large Distressed Heart. I continued adding layers of colour until I was happy with the result. Then inked the edges with a black archival ink pad.
Next step was to create a master board onto cardstock applying colours of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics with my fingers and blending the colours together. Stamping was then added to the master board. Once I was happy with the result I stamped the Butterfly Stamp onto the master Board and then fussy cut out. This leaves you with the stamped imaged coloured and ready to add detailing and highlights with a white posca pen. I then measured and cut a piece of Tando Grey Board to size for the plaque base. This was given a coat of DecoArt Chalky Finish in Carbon dried with a heat tool. A coat of DecoArt Media Ultra Matte Varnish was then applied and dried to seal. An off cut of Grey board was then cut to size and the corners rounded with a corner chomper to create the small word plaque. A sentiment was stamped onto white cardstock then adhered to the small grey board plaque and the edges sanded to remove the excess cardstock. I decided not to ink the edges as I liked the starkness of the white. The heart was the then attached to the base using off cuts of greyboard to give depth and dimension. The same principle was given to the Butterfly when attaching on top of the heart. To finish the small word plaque was added to the base and dotting with a white posca pen was added around the edges.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by today.
