I started by painting the whole thing with red acrylic, and when it was dry I added crackle medium. Once that was completely dry I covered the whole thing in black acrylic, and voila!
The silver coating on the hearts from the Mixed Passion add-on didn't work with my colour scheme, so I sanded the piece down then painted Inka Gold on roughly with my finger, leaving some sanded patches exposed.
Isn't that little metal heart piece stunning? I played with Prima's new Stationer's Desk papers for the rolled pieces - love this collection and can't wait to get my hands on more of it!
To ground the paper pieces into the background, I stamped on some stitches using the Prima Stitched Lines from the add-on with Picket Fence Distress Paint.
Lots of gorgeous Prima flowers and some beautiful ribbon from the Flying Unicorn Store to finish everything off.
