Altered heart tag

Happy Sunday dear friends!
Today I'm sharing a Valentine's Day project, an altered heart tag I created for ColourArte.


For this project I used: 
ColourArte products:



Other products:
  • heart tag
  • 7 Dots Studio tags
  • 2Crafty chipboard flower
  • arrow stencil
  • flowers
  • White Gesso
  • 3D Gloss Gel
  • glass beads and glitter
  • wire
  • black grass
First I applied the 3D Radiant Gel with a pallet knife on the stencil. It dries pretty quickly, but if you are impatient like me you can speed the process with a heat gun.


 Then I sprayed some water on the Twinkling H2Os to activate them - that takes about 5 minutes, so I had the time to glue everything down with the 3D Gloss Gel.

When the H2Os where ready, I used a paintbrush and colored some spots here and there...

Last step was to glue the glass glitter with the 3D Gloss Gel and make some splashes with white gesso.

That was pretty easy and quick, don't you think? :)

With this project I'm entering the 'Hearts' challenge at Studio 75

I hope you got some ideas on how to make a Valentine's Day protect.

Have a lovely crafty day!

GIVEAWAY for my followers!!!

Dear friends,
Today I have a special gift for a lucky follower of my blog, 
who loves ColourArte products as much as I do :)


Here are the products you can win with random draw...

It's the secret mix of mica and other proprietary mineral particles that refract light, like a crystal.
Silks are easy to use paints that create a semi-gloss glaze - not too shiny, not too flat, but just right.
Simply brush Silks onto your project, using a wide brush for broad strokes or a fine brush for details. Or use a brayer if you want even wider swaths of color.
Allow Silks to dry between colors to keep the glaze layers distinct and create depth, or blend the colors while still wet if you prefer that effect.
Silks are formulated for paper, wood, pre-washed fabrics, papier mache, acrylic and other plastics, canvas, gourds, silk and silk ribbon, terra cotta, paper-clay, air-dry clay, air-dry polymer, leather, faux leather, and more.
