I started by painting the edges of the mdf heart with a Ranger adirondack pitch black acrylic paint dabber. I then cut two hearts from white card stock just smaller than the mdf heart. For the front heart I covered the heart with Tim Holtz tissue tape then used Tim Holtz distress inks festive berries, barn door and picked raspberry to distress the background. I used the Dylusions diamond of a boarder stencil with snow cap dabber, the dotted flowers stencil with the pitch black dabber and the letter jumble with festive berries distress ink. Once dry I outlined the diamonds with a black pen and just inside added a line with a glitter pen, I added glossy accents over the dots and I used a white pen to highlight the letters. I also made a dash line border around the edge of the heart and used the Tim Holtz tiny attacher to add film strip ribbon across the middle. I added liquid pearls to the top right and black Ranger stickles to the top left of the heart. I attached the heart from my AFTH packaging to the top centre with glossy accents. Next I stamped twinkie on some white card stock and using my water brush coloured him with gathered twigs, faded jeans and mowed lawn distress inks before covering him with Tim Holtz Distress crackle paint rock candy and fixed in place using sticky pads. Finally I added an appropriate hand written sentiment.
