Heartfelt Creations DT Alumni Hop

It's time again for the Heartfelt Creations Design Team Alumni monthly blog hop... We've chosen the last Tuesday of each month to share a project featuring Heartfelt Creations' stamps when we can, just for fun.  If you'd like a chance at winning a prize, be sure to leave a comment on every blog along the hop by Friday - there is a $25 gift certificate up for grabs for one random commenter! If you'd like to view the entire hop, click over toto get started. If you're following along with the hop already and you've arrived here from Selma's blog you're doing just fine.

I created a really simple mixed media piece for my Daily Window Bag with Heartfelt Creation Stamps. This large floral stamp is so great for mixed media! Love the possibilities.

 Here's a closer look at the panel:


The flowers were stamped on Basic Grey cardstock, diecut with Spellbinders dies, then sponged and penciled. The button die is from Impression Obsession. The leaves were stamped in Versafine ink and painted with acrylic paints then shaded with a Polychromos pencil.


I used a diecut as a stencil to add the raised white areas - that is acrylic paint and I spread it with my finger.
