Letter W

Hi! Tuesday again so soon, but I'm actually delighted to be posting on Tuesday :D
I chose Wisteria as my word for this weeks letter W.
The image I used is one I took just a few days ago of a fine specimen growing up the front of a house along the road from me. I printed it twice; stuck one copy to some scrap card & the other, I stuck the central part, to a wooden heart, (which I had pre-coated with a base of white acrylic paint). 


Once dry I coated the heart with crackle accents. 


I pleated some lace for the bottom of the tag & added some ric-rac ribbon. I matted the tag to some lilac card which I edged with indigo watercolour. The tie is a cord & tassel from my stash. 
Have a Wonderful Week, stay well, be happy, & I will see you here next week for letter X (eek!) 
:-D *Hugs* Mo xx

  9. I love the effect you achieved with the heart, that really looks so cool. Wisteria, such a pretty colour, I was lucky to see ours in full bloom at the cottage in France, before we left a few weeks ago.
