12 Days of Christmas - Day 2

This is my offering for the second day of Christmas inspired by Alpha Stamps: Turtle Doves ... in the spirit of love, peace and kindness .... which requires a lot of wonderful hearts
 
I created the background by lightly brushing various distress inks onto white card and stamping (all stamps: Elzybells) it with blocks and heart stamps. For the centre piece I made a rosette from crepe paper and covered the edge with Stickles. The heart is a cardboard shape which has been 'painted' with ink and acrylic paint and then lightly crackled with crackle glaze from Paper Artsy. Stickles and Glossy Accents give a final touch. And now all what need to be done was to add a little stamped sentiment and two tiny punhed and inked turtle doves. Wishing you a lovely day, Petra.
