Red Passion! A Wooden wall hanging by Dee

Hi everyone! Today for my project I have altered a wooden
 garden border panel,

Firstly I covered the entire piece of wood with gesso, once dry I then painted 
with Fresco Finish paints in the following colours pumpkin soup, 
London bus, blood orange and claret.

Next I coloured a white tag with the following distress inks 
spiced marmalade, fired brick and aged mahogany.

 I  then inked up the Neil Walker Fantasy Background stamp with aged mahogany distress ink
and stamped the entire tag. Next I sprinkled on clear embossing powder,
then gold and heat set.

 I tore the tag up and glued it randomly to the wooden painted tag. I then used 
my cropadile to put three eyelets at the base then using jump rings
 connected the beads to the base. 

I rolled out some Fimo modelling clay in black and used the Neil Walker 
heart stamp to stamp into it then I heat set it, and the calligraphy mat.

I rubbed treasure gold in Spanish topaz over the heart and 
calligraphy embellishment.   

once baked in the oven I then buffed up with treasure gold.

I also used some treasure gold on the painted tag to give it a gleam.

And make it shine!

I then added a brass ring to fix to the wall

That's it from me today! I hope you have enjoyed this project,

happy stamping Dee X
