I am going to admit this was one of my favourites to make and I really like the simplicity of the design. I believe it is the seven of hearts underneath...topped with gesso of course.
I used three shades of acrylics, blended here on the main card. Once that was dry I used a Finnabair stamp and stamped the lettering in black archival. Once the ink was completely dry I applied a decent thickness of crackle glaze and left it overnight to dry.
I also took a piece of red card, stamped it with the Finnabair stamp and used a punch to get the heart shape. I then added crackle glaze to that too and left it to dry.
In the morning it was simply a matter of sponging some black ink around the edges and adhering the heart to the playing card. Job done!
Until next time
