Your Heart.....

{jane bosi}  Happy Thursday, Junkies!!!  I completely adore the sentiment found on this image and often find myself drawn to use it! 

For my project today, I had wanted to use a Tape Texture technique for some added dimension and interest on my card well, project because when I started, I had no idea what was going to happen!  Who else works like that? 

I started with a precut tag and some masking tape.  After covering the tag with randomly sized bits of tape, I applied gesso to the whole thing.  When the gesso was completely dry, I added various distress inks to colorize and highlight the texture added by the tape.  I added my stamped image, Old Friend, over the top and let it dry completely.  When I got around to using the tag, I decided on a card, adding some extra hot pink ink (Pink Carmine, Faber Castell PITT pen, to be specific) around the edges to tie it to the base cardstock a bit more. 

My background is Sea Waves, which I stamped several times and then cut apart into the three panels.  The scattering a sequins was the finishing touch and really seemed to pull the whole piece together. 

Have a great day, and don't forget to be awesome!  TTFN, Jane
