Hi there! We hope you had a lovely weekend, doesn’t Monday come around quickly! It’s the longest day of summer today (although we haven’t seen any sunshine here in Wales today), but Jane is here with a wonderfully vibrant heart plaque to brighten the day, and also celebrate PRIDE with fabulous rainbow inks and our Equality sentiment stamp.
As June is Pride month I could not let the month pass by without making something to celebrate this most important annual event. I decided to make a mixed media heart plaque. Equality in this world for everyone is so very important, so the Equality Hope + Love stamp set below seemed perfect to use. I love this definition of the word Equality.
I also wanted to share some love so I also used the gorgeous grungy heart from the Follow Your Heart stamp set
and I added some background stamping using the uber useful Grunge Tones stamps
This is what I got up to;
I used an MDF heart from my stash and painted it with gesso.
Using yellow acrylic paint and one of the grunge tones stamps I repeat stamped all over.
I repeated this using the other stamps in the set using red and blue paints. Do remember to wash your stamps immediately after using paint.
I stamped out the equality sentiment from Equality, Hope and Love, cut it up and matted it onto red card.
I then cut out a smaller heart shape from card by hand and coloured it using a rainbow of distress inks.
Here is the finished plaque with its gorgeous rainbow ribbon.
A couple of close ups where you can see I added some glossy accents to the bubbles, and decoupaged a couple of the elements in this lovely heart stamp.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Bye for now,
Wow! This heart plaque is amazing! Our grunge heart stamp looks stunning against the fabulous rainbow inks, and the sentiments are perfect for PRIDE month! Thank you Jane ♡
