Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well! I am here with a present for a friend :-)
For this project I used blank canvas, linen cardstock, led lights, clear holographic embossing powder, heart dies, cosmic shimmer pigment powder, needle, thread and glue.
I began by sewing the led lights into the back of the canvas using a needle and thread. Any ends of the threads I secured with a knot and a dab of glue to seal.
I then cut a panel of linen cardstock to cover the front of the canvas. I then ran this through my die cutting machine with all the heart dies in a nesting pattern. I then embossed and coloured some of the die cut hearts with clear holographic embossing powder covering stamped swirls and I painted the colour with cosmic shimmer powder (so in real life its dark and pearlescent and as you move the hearts look a different shimmering colour or shine depending on the angle). I then glued the panel and hearts onto the canvas. The hearts I had left blank I glued directly onto the canvas like the outside of the heart-and then pierced with a needle in heart patterns so you can see the light coming through those areas clearly. I then bent the coloured hearts so they are 3D compared to the rest of the heart.
I have shown the canvas with the lights off/on so you can see the difference :-)
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Thank you for looking and for all your lovely comments :-)
