A Fine Romance at Try it on Tuesday

Hi All, thank you for dropping in at Jumbled Crafts and I hope you are all ready for the new challenge at Try it on Tuesday. We have gone all romantic with A Fine Romance as the theme. You can make anything you like so long as it follows the theme and if you need inspiration just pop over to TIOT and see what the rest of the team has made.

I made a canvas but it could be used on card I think.


I started off with a square and a heart cut from a cardboard box and covered them in metal foil tape. I then ran them through the Cuttlebug with embossing folders, Next came a coat of white acrylic and some texture added with a stencil and Modge Podge. Also a couple of die cuts as well. The colours are Distressed Stains and the beautiful flowers Valerie sent me in my Christmas parcel. I made the little birds in Paint Shop Pro and printed them out on patterned paper.

Can't wait to see what everyone makes so it's over to you

Love Chrissie xx

The texture is so beautiful! Difficult to imagine the heart started as a piece of cardboard. Great shabby chic feel for this gorgeous canvas.

That's a beautiful embossed background - the white paint over the metal gives it such a cool weathered, shabby chic look. The little birds are charming.
