~ Some more Shabby Vintage ~
I know not another one, it will be my last for a while as I have some more 3 dimensional projects I'm doing ATM.
Now I've uploaded the photo I've noticed that it looks like the bird is balancing the heart on his tail. Well what can I say he is is a very clever bird & it's too late to change it as it is well and truly glued down now LOL!
I made my own background paper for this one using some of my favourite labels, script and post mark stamps. I stamped them using coffee archival ink and toned it down with picket fence stain. I used distress inks in old paper and victorian velvet to tint the paper. The frame, hinge, flower and heart are also made using this paper. The bird is painted using fresco finish paints.
I'm entering this for the following challenges

One stop craft challenge ~ handmade flowers

Have a lovely crafty weekend, hopefully it will be a sunny one XX
