Heart Art

Hola!  Last week, on the Bombshell Stamps Blog,  I shared an easy embossing resist technique for creating interesting backgrounds.  This week I'm back to share what I made with the die cut panel I created in the tutorial.  

Our fabulous pin-up gal for August is Milo and she set our theme this month and challenged us to create shabby chic cards or projects.  Well, I have the "shabby" part down, not so sure about the "chic" part...LOL!

For this card, I used a gorgeous heart with wings image from the All My Heart set.  Believe it or not, there was a time when I hated hearts.  Not the ever-so-fierce organ that keeps me perky, but the super cute, saccharin sweet images that many stamp companies use in their Valentine's Day releases...BLECH!  Then I started to take an interest in religious themed art and the sacred heart was frequently featured in these types of works.  After that I was practically obsessed with it.  When Bombshell Stamps released the two heart sets, I was nearly over the moon.  Now I can't get enough...heck, I even like the cute stuff ;D  Funny how our tastes can change so drastically from one moment to the next :)

I'll keep this post short, but I have one more thing to share before I go.  I know I only put up 2 cards this week and that is totally lame.  AND, I know it's only Thursday and there's still a few more days left in the week, but I'm just not going to get another chance to make anymore cards before Sunday, because I'm...drumroll, please...heading to Roswell to take 4 classes with Tim Holtz!!!  Yep, you read that right!  The one and only Master of Grunge!  Sultan of Paper!  King of Distress!  I am beyond excited, as you can probably tell...LOL!  I plan on taking lots of pics and sharing them on my blog when I get back, so pop back in and check them out next week.  Until then, stay crafty ;D
