Altered Wooden Heart




I would like to say a big happy birthday to Ginger Snap Creations (GSC)  it's there bloaversary! they are also having a wee celebration  (lots of goodiesto be had)and I am happy to know of the blog now. I have been joining in their last few challenges, what fun! They are a talented bunch of people and very friendly too. You can click on the link to get to the birthday post, or I have a banner on the left hand side with my other challenge blogs I visit why not give them a go! they are challenging but fun and interesting I love them.

A wooden heart from Provo Craft, what could I do I wonder?


What do you think of it now? I remember the Walt Disney Alice in Wonderland cartoon, I think it's wonderfully done, I love the cattapillar, but when the cards are painting the roses red it's just a wonderful little song until the queen comes and chops off their heads! I have seen the recent one in 3D and although good, the Mad Hatter is fantastic (Johnny Depp) but it didn't quite have the magic of the first one for me. Any way I digress, I have put some Basic Grey paper on and sanded the edges then added some DI. I then stamped the queen on some white card stock coloured her in and stuck her on the heart. I wrote the words on some card, inked it with some DI then aged by DI the edges (fiddily but fun!). Finally I took this rose, from my local habadashery shop (it's foam) then partially collored it, the part  I coloured I soaked in Glossy accents to make the (paint) look wet! with a few drips thrown in. Easy Peesy and I thought this could go on a card or LO at a later date I was quite happy with the end result.


Here is a close up of queeny loosing her rag. Thank you for all your lovely complements on the changes I have been making to my blog, I am really happy with it too!
