This time I cut the largest of the Spellbinders Nested Hearts from grunge paper which was covered in sticky back foil. (what a chore to cut! no need to emboss this happened while being cut, whew!) Using q-tips, I applied red pepper and a combo of stonewashed & sail boat alcohol inks. Trying my best to not color the embossed flourish. In the center of the blue I've stamped the mini blueprint heart in Archival jet black (see close up). The whole thing was lightly covered with black paint which was immediately dabbed off to blunt the shine and highlight the pitted affect on the foil. At the top I've placed a mini bottle cap with a heart peeking out from under a gear. The small heart is a TH mini colored with aged mahogany stain and heat set. When the glossy accents was added again, the swirly pattern was created and a bit of faux bleaching to boot! To this I added 3 silver pearls died blue to match the background heart.
I hope you like my Metallica Heart Shield which I am entering in:
