A Flaming Heart Ex Vos II

This Heart stole my heart. 

It's just one of many wonderful pieces from
that you can find at 

It is a Relics and Artifacts piece in the Flaming Heart Ex Votos II set here.

I painted it with several DecoArt Fluid Acrylics and added some of
 Andy Skinner's fabulous Dirty Wash mixture. (The man is Genius)

I used Coral Red Gilder's Paste Patina and Gold Inka Gold  as well. 
The center is a Rub-on from the Tim Holtz Apothecary sheet. It worked out really great!
There is a hole in the top of the Heart so it can be used as an ornament or in my case, I added a jump ring and a piece of black ribbon to create a pendant necklace.  Or, how bout a piece of this cool new
So many possibilities!
Thank for stopping by.

Absolutely gorgeous! I love the awesome colors and what a cool idea with the rub-on (which looks lovely)!

Wow! The rub-on worked so well, especially against the red. Andy Skinner's product sounds such a great way to age a piece - love what you did with this ex voto. xxx

Linda this heart is just fabulous. Gosh you transformed it into a piece of ART. You are so talented. I love your idea of adding rub- ons. I did'nt know that it was possible to make them adhere. Thank you for sharing this. I will keep it on my " to do list".....
