Hello all! Today I have a gift project for you. I purchased this little decor item at the Dollar Tree with the intent of reworking it. I live in a small town without a craft store, so I often make do with the little craft section at Walmart and fun finds at the Dollar Tree until I get to a bigger town for craft stores.
I had intentions of removing the wooden heart and using the item as a blank canvas, but I was thwarted by some good glue. That just made me get a little more creative!
After several coats of white paint, I had something resembling a blank canvas. I stamped an image on the left and a sentiment on the heart.
With some Distress ink, I filled in around the image from First Love, First Hero, an awesome Unity Stamp Company set for Father's Day or for scrapbooking little girls and their dads. Then I used embossing ink and powder to create clouds in the upper right with the clouds from this set, City of Love.
On the back/inside, I made a place to sign and write a special message, again using distress ink to match the front.
If the recipient wants to sit this on a desk, both sides are decorated. If it's hung on a wall, this message is preserved for those times the canvas is taken down and moved.
Have you made anything like a canvas with your stamps? Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win Unity Stamp Company's generous grab bags of 25 stamps!
