Valentine Ornament


I used a rubber stamp from Stampotique called Daniel's Tree Topper for this ornament. The ornament base is a tuna can lid that was painted with gesso and antiqued with brown paint. The project is embellished with two heart shaped gems. 

I would like to enter this project in the following challenges:

Things to Alter - anything goes
Pink Gem - love
Craft Your Passion - #299 anything goes
Simon Says Monday - recycle/upcycle
Tuesday Throwdown - #281 lots of layers
Stampotique - #232 spots+stripes

♥ Wendy
