Woodware Challenge – Week 83 – Vintage Hearts and Love – Day 6

Well I am last this week for the Woodware Vintage Heart Challenge and this week I know where I got my inspiration from,

dorrieMagI subscribe to this magazine from Rainbow Silks, but quite often I don’t get around to reading them, but this week I spotted these hearts. My daughter has bought herself an iPad Mini and wanted a cover for it, and she does like hearts and brown.

To start with I stamped Jane Gill’s Bubble Heart with Russet Chalk Yink, and heat set with an iron. I then used my stylus and added some colour using Colorbox chalk ink pads.

Shona is very pleased with the finished pouch, except she would like more buttons on it!

Thank you for visiting us this week, I hope that you have found some inspiration from us.
