BINGO! Full House

Well it's been a long while since I entered the challenge so I decided to go for the full house.  I started with three blank beer mats that I die cut to hearts. Next I painted them with white gesso and then when dry painted them with a pearl green acrylic paint. On one heart I used the double vine stencil and after mixing some paint with Grunge Paste pulled it through the stencil, removed the stencil and set asside to dry, just before fully dry I brushed kiwi perfect pearls over the top. On the next heart I used the florabunda stamp, using glitter glue I randomly stamped on the heart before applying gilding flakes which I brushed off, I also used the same glue to go around the edges on both hearts applying the flakes as I went.  On the last heart I used the smaller leafy swirl stamp and randomly stamped second generation, I then stamped the clarity tiny birds and then the sentiment. I then used my glue pen and highlighted areas and sprinkled with glamour dust. Then I moved to shrink plastic... Stamping a Clarity butterfly in permanent ink, lightly coloured it in, cut out before applying heat to shrink it!  I then used my heat gun to stick it the the heart. Lastly I used my crop-a-dial and punched holes and applied the rivets before threading together with some ribbon.  Oh and finally brushed the whole thing with some gold gilding wax!

Hope you all like it!

Hugs and kisses
