Hearts & Swirls - my 1st Tando Creative Team post

Hi folks and welcome to my 1st post for the Tando Creative Team. This week's theme is 'hearts & Swirls' and you can find more amazing inspiration on the Tando blog.

I cut out a heart shape using a bit of cardboard. Then picked a selection of Tando hearts from the grab bag and picked a couple of swirls from the small and large swirls pack. I added a couple of metal flower embellishments to the mix for definition. After sticking the flowers and swirls down, I covered with whole thing with black gesso.
I then sprayed over the top using metallic acrylic paint and dry brushed some white gesso over the top. 

With the Tando hearts I selected, I put them in pairs and covered one heart from each pair with Flitterglu and IndigoBlu copper kettle mega flakes.
With the other heart from each pair, I used the Tando suits mask and put a heart shape on each one with texture paste. I then painted them with IndigoBlu paint and added DecoArt one step crackle over the top, ensuring to avoid the texture paste heart shape. Then layered them to add height. 

I then coloured some satin ribbon with the IndigoBlu paint as its also a fantastic fabric paint. And stamped the vintage flourish stamp over the top. 

Hope you like my 1st Tando make, looking forward to the next.
