Embossed heart ornament

A couple months ago I changed up the junk decor on top of my dresser using a tri-fold wooden screen and other shabby chic bits 'n bobs. I decorated the wooden screen with a couple of hearts - the plush one was made by Missy at Crafting With Cat Hair, and the other came from Beyond the Garden Gate.

So what's wrong with that? Ummm.......

Oh yeah. THREE sections to the screen. I need a third heart. Luckily I have quite the stash of scrapbook paper which included these squares of white embossed floral pattern.


Using a cookie cutter to trace my shape...


I cut it out, then applied some distress ink with a damp piece of paper towel.



When that was dry I punched a hole and added my favorite polka dot ribbon.



WOWeee that turned out much more tan than I was thinking. What was I thinking? Well, it will either be a fantastic transition piece with the other tan distressed items or it will bug me until I make it whiter somehow.

Either way it works great for adding the missing piece!

Hmmm does this count as a destash project? :)

Nice work and I like that it has that unexpected quality of a soft punch of color. Don't you just love changing things out? It keeps life interesting :)

Cute. Why don't you paint it white and then try inking it again? If you spray paint it with a light misting, you might not even need to reink it.
