A Whovian Blue Card of Love

Hi everyone, just a fun and simple card for my dear 
Granddaughter who is an avid Dr. Who follower...
 a Whovian, I presume.

She is not a glitzy or foo-foo type person. Glitter and such would've 
been a bit over-the-top for her tastes. So I tried to keep in touch with
her favorite color....whovian blue, and use it with a 
Relics and Artifacts Flaming Heart Ex Votos I.

I used some cheesecloth and Sculpture Medium to create a base, and 2 
large Ornate Flourishes underneath the Heart. 

The heart and flourishes are painted with Heavy Black Gesso,
 and then several colors of ArtAlchemy Opal Magic paints are added...

I used Clear Crackle Paste on the center of the heart to add some
texture, and then more gold paint is brushed on. 
The work LOVE is added as a simple sentiment.

I cut a piece of some gorgeous scrapbook paper from my stash
 and added a bit of gold Opal Magic around the edges. 
Then I layered it onto a piece of black chipboard.

Pretty simple, and very easy to create a memento
for a loved one or a friend to display on a small
easel in their home.

This is the drama queen who jokingly threw herself on the floor crying when I sent her a card with a barcode on it. 😂
