Heart Art Part II The Love Letter by Dee

Hi Everyone Dee here today with the second part of my post and
 continuing the theme heart art. This is the inside of the box and is 
called the love letter as she has it all secreted away in her love 
box the photo of her love and his letters all held 
together with a gold heart.
I painted the inside of the box with distress paints and spritzed them so the 
colours mingled together to give a lovely warm red.
For the letter I used an old craft coloured envelope which I stamped with 
the Calligraphic Mat 12 and used Distress inks both Walnut Stain &
 Vintage photo.  Around the torn edges I distressed with 
running vintage photo round.
I glued two different sized beer mats together to create my note photo
 keeper. this was coloured with the same distress paints that were used 
on both the lid and the inside of the box.
This was then stamped with the bark background stamp from The
 Artistic Stamper, Archival ink was used on the stamp & black soot 
was applied to the edges of the matt.
I tore a strip of the craft paper off and stamped with the calligraphy matt
in black archival and glued it down the middle of the matt.
Gold embossed heart see link here to previous post for the box. The photo's 
were then attached as was the film strip which I attached with
 glossy accents.
The ornate corner was then applied.
Well that about sums it up I hope you have enjoyed this post as much as 
I have creating it.
If there is anything you are not sure of please contact Jennie at the shop I am sure she will be able to get it for you. I hope you all have an amazing Valentines day and see you again towards the end of the month. Please feel free to leave a comment as these are what inspire me 
and make doing these projects so rewarding.
Cheers Dee x
