Lucky Is A State Of Mind

Today I have another piece of art using my new release from AALLandCreate. To view the whole collection and to see a list of our stockists please click HERE. If you would like to see my first piece using my stamps, please click HERE. I also have another project I created yesterday which you can find HERE.
Today I have used my heart set of stamps to create this mixed media piece using one of Tim Holtz Etcetera Tags.
Here is my stamp set that I used and I am absolutely delighted with the way this turned out.
I used Kassa's stencils in the background to give me added texture and dimension and I love the worn, aged appearance I achieved with Distress Paints.
I added a few delicate splatters of paint and highlighted the letters a little further with added paint around the edges to help define each one.
I added the number 13 as a play on my words as everyone always refers to 13 as being unlucky hence my Quote Chip added to the bottom of my piece.
I added a few cotton fibres for added texture and machine stitched each of my hearts down the centre.
I stamped each of my hearts onto lots of layers of vintage French bookpages and added a Tim Holtz embellishment for further interest. A few delicate splatters of Tumbled Glass Distress Paint coordinate with my worn background.
I added the reinforcer to the top of my tag and added a few jump rings for added interest.
Thanks so much for stopping by and a huge THANK YOU to all of you for your support regarding my new release.

EXQUISITE background - the colors and textures are BEAUTIFUL Tracy. And you made your hearts into a LOVELY flower... UNIQUELY different - which I love to see. Really like the extra ELEGANCE the pair of 3 small rusty rings gives to this piece too. You embellished it PERFECTLY. Xj.
