Stampotique Art in your Heart

I love the Daniels heart stamp, so I just had to use for this challenge
First I covered a 6" x 6" piece of Tando chip board with DecoArt modelling paste, I dried with a heat tool until it had a skin and then stamped the hearts
Once dry I coloured with Dylusions Ink sprays
Then highlighted was DecoArt Metallic Lustre Iced espresso and then added alcohol Ink to make pinker

The hanging hearts were modelling paste through a stencil I made based on the stamp, put onto muslin fabric and embroidery thread for added texture
This was applied in two layers to get dimension, these were also coloured with ink sprays
The canvas back was muslin coloured with Derwent Inktense sticks, distressed the edges and then glued and turned back over the edge of the front

I put the hanging thread through the back at the top and then adhered the hearts onto the canvas 


  1. I love your work and this is no exception ! Great stuff !

  2. This is stunning!

    I love the colors, texture, dimension, and especially the way you used Daniel's Hearts stamp!

    Thanks for joining us at Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog!

  3. That heart is just wonderful, as is the way you have used it!! Love the shimmer and that deep purple against the pink, - gorgeous!!

  4. I am such an avid fan, Jools, and the piece is just one of the reasons why! Your creations are never "common," but each time something unique, something where you are pushing yourself to create something yet unimagined. Thanks for such inspiring work--always! Thanks, too, for joining us at the Stampotique Designers' "Heart in Your Art" Challenge this week!

  5. Love all of the torn edges on this pretty purple piece!

  6. Great card, love the use of texture! And fab colours
    Thanks for putting a heart in your art

  7. Love your use of the muslin to give a shabby soft look to the hearts and the border - it's wonderful. And when I succumb to Daniel's Hearts, I think it's going to be your fault! Amazing work again, Jools!
