Altered Metal with Paint

The weekly Compendium of Curiosities Challenge over at Studio L3 is on number 30 of 35 challenges. This week we are to focus on page 48 of Tim Holtz's book. Woohoo! This is a great challenge as it had me try something new, which is always fun. I used Red Pepper and Pearl to jazz up my vintage frame.

A couple of Sizzix embossing folders added some pizazz to the Spellbinders hearts. I highlighted the relief with Fired Brick Distress Inks. Tim's designer paper provide background music and the inset hearts. The word Love is from the Michelle Ward Tea and Coffee Collection of rubber stamps for Stampington and Company (Scandal...). Thanks for looking!

Other challenges this has been entered in:  Simon Says Stamp and Simon Says Stamp and Show and The Cheerful Stamp Pad.

Charmaine, this is a completely gorgeous work of Valentine art! Your altered metal Ornate Plate is so pretty, and the embossed hearts are sweet and elegant. Even the background paper is perfect! I hope you had a very happy Heart Day!
