Love you more and Alpha F

Hi, its that time of the year when we are all getting soppy about Valentines Day!  I have made up a very simple fabric heart for *Tando Creative* to celebrate.  No chipboard in sight but I did use a stencil...


I kept the colours subtle as sometimes we don't need really bright do we.  I have painted onto ordinary cream calico using *DecoArt* paints.  Here it is before I cut it out...


I painted the background with *Medium Grey* then splattered with some *White Shimmer* (unscrew the top and tap the tube).  When it was all dry I added *Cobalt Blue* through the *Long Flourish Mask*.  I drew my hearts before adding some lettering and hearts with *Cadmium Red* and a very fine brush!!!!  I also added some fine white lines to the flourish.  Although all the paint makes the fabric stiff-ish it still goes through a sewing machine with ease.  Some matching ribbon was added and a bead to finish.

I am also a part of The Craft Barns Alpha Challenge 2016 and here is my entry for this week... F... for flowers...



Thank you so much for coming to look today, take care xxx

Beautiful work! This stencil is definitely underutilized in my stash. I'll have to dust it off! Thanks for the inspiration! <3

That stencil works really well on the heart shape - lovely! Pretty little flower box, too - the lace edging looks very sweet!
