Inspired by Helen Chilton

Being PaperArtsy's 10th Birthday month we have been inspired by many Guest Designers over the course of each weekend this month.  Here is my take on what Helen Chilton did on Sunday.

I started with a pre paint and crackled heart I had awaiting final decoration, I also used this heart as a template to cut a smaller heart out of Grey Board.  I painted this to match.  I then stamped the images from LPC003 onto tissue and painted highlights on the reverse in Bora Bora, Zesty Zing, Rose, Cinnamon and pansy and then once dry went over the whole in Concrete to make the highlights pop a bit.

I stamped the script from HP1006 onto both sides of the big heart and the front of the little one (should have not done the little one to define it from the big one but hey ho).  I then attached the boy image to the little heart and attached this to the front.  I stuck the lady on the back and stencilled Very Berry through the leaf design.

As everyone else seems to take photos in their gardens I decided to make use of my Juniper!

Oh I can see now what you mean about your little heart being lost in your big one, next time you'll have to choose an alternative colour so it stands out more, but you can still see it and it looks fab, as does the other side.
