Now onto what I have been creating. 

I have really got into making these these little art cards, they aren't as small as ATC's so you aren't as restricted with size....which I sometimes struggle with when making ATC's. 

Here is what I have used-
Kraft Card
Mount board 
Script Stamp 
Sewing Machine 
Spray Adhesive 
Distress ink

Firstly cut your mount board & Kraft card to size, I tend to stick to 4.5 " x 3.5" , the idea of the mount board is it gives it more strength. 

Cut a heart shape from Kraft card & using your 3D Enamel Gel in Berry Red give a nice thick layer over the heart

Embossing Enamels aren't just for Embossing, Especially ones like Embossing Enamel Ruby Red Slippers that have the glitter and different sized grains. I have used it here to give texture and sparkle. 
Do this whilst wet. 

Whilst your heart is drying take your Kraft card and have some fun with it...I have used some ink and flicked across it, and then used a script stamp...but let your imagination run wild. 

Now you might have guessed I have to have texture, so here I have sprayed some cheesecloth with spray adhesive and wrapped it about the kraft card, I have also stitched around two of the corners and added some of the gorgeous Embossing Enamel Mermaid Tears

I love this set  and used two of the medium, and two of the small wings for this, I gave them a rough layer of Embossing Enamel Black Vintage  which works perfectly against the red of the heart. 

This shows you have fantastic they look when done

 This is a quote has always had special meaning to me, and it seemed so perfect for this, i simply printed the quote off & rough cut the words out, I then decided to use some distress ink to age them. 

Now just stick the Kraft Card to the mount board and stick all your elements together. And there you have your own mini art. 

Don't forget to stop by the Globecraft Piccolo blog each day and leave a comment to be in with a chance of winning the Gift Voucher. 
Have fun
