Visible image Once upon a time ...

Morning lovelies, 
It is Saturday which means Visible image day for me. 
Now last week you may remember that I made the Sun catcher, now because the centre of the hearts was cut away this left me with some smaller, whole heart shapes....So i decided to use them for this weeks project. 
One of my favorite Visible Image stamps is the beautiful Once Upon a time so i had to use that, and here is what I have created....

I wanted a nice vintage style hanger. I have also used Bronte Script and stamped it onto Tissue paper and then applied it too the heart using PVA, this gives it a very subtle look and makes a nice base. 
The castle and sentiment were stamped using pigment ink and then clear embossed, I wasn't very precise with my stamping because i wanted a "rough" look...i hope that makes sense, i spent ages thinking how to put it ! 
I distress inked the edges and then rubbed over it with some Gilding wax and sprinkled some bronze UTEE to give some texture. 

This picture shows the sheen of the gilding wax, and i think it shows just how beautiful the castle is. 

I hope you like what i created, i certainly had fun creating it.
