The call out from Simon Says Stamp and Show this week was to get messy and that's just what I did while I was decorating the little parcel of chocs I'd bought for SMO's Valentine's Day present.
I've photographed the steps along the way:
I started with a heart cut free hand from thick cardboard and covered it with Distress paint. It's then had scrunched tissue paper stuck all over with PVA glue.
I've stamped onto the heart with Distress Ink and bubble wrap, as well as inking around the edge.
It's then had a coating of Rock Candy Crackle and, once dry it's been rubbed over with more Distress Ink.
Here's the crackle close-up.
Some ribbon and a little love note finished it all off.
