Woodware Challenge – Week 83 – Vintage Hearts and Love

Well I am last this week for the Woodware 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.

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 me today, I think that over on the Woodware blog you will find lots of variety of vintage style hearts this week.
