Glass Bead Heart
I'm playing along at the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge, where the theme is 'Think Pink'.
I painted a chipboard heart pink, then covered it in glass bead gel medium. I used some patterned paper! (Hasn't really dented the stash, but every little helps, as Tesco keep telling us.)
I wanted the background to be quite faded, so I knocked the colour back with a layer of white acrylic paint, then added in some pink Pan Pastel down the right-hand side, and stencilled some hearts using the ARTplorations Hearts All Over stencil and Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. Tied some tape around the heart and added a button (minus the shank) to the centre of the heart, and stamped the love lozenge in the bottom right corner.
Here's a close-up of the glass-bead heart. The button has tiny bead-like dots on it too.
I'm also playing along at Fusion. Look at all those lovely textured hearts!

Don't forget, the Mixed Media Card Challenge is all about Love with the optional twist of Buttons and it's open until 25 February
