The Artistic Stamper Challenge for this month is LOVE
and as its Valentines I have done a heart using 
Deco art media range and the fabulous 
Artistic Stamper Swirls stamp.

1. Papier-Mache heart
2. Deco Art Media line Gesso & Crackle paste.
3 Deco art Americano Jack O Lantern Orange, Burnt Orange & Deep Burgandy
4. Media fluid acrylics Quinacridone Gold, Carbon Black Antquing cream.
5. Treasure Gold Spanish Topaz and White Fire.
6. Fimo black clay.
7. Glass Micro beads. 

First I covered the heart with Gesso and put on the crackle paste
 with a pallet knife.

I pushed the micro beads into the wet crackle paste, I allowed it to dry 

I painted the heart with Jack O lantern Orange, then Burnt Orange, next 
I painted the entire heart with Deep Burgandy.

Once the paint had dried I then used the Quinacridone Gold.

I rolled out the Black Fimo clay and wet the swirl stamp and stamped 
it into the clay three times and cut out. I baked
 it in the oven once I took it out I bent it 
round the heart.

Once cooled I attached it with a hot glue gun and gilded
 it with treasure gold. 

When I had completed the heart it reminded me of the apple in
 Snow White as it has a beautiful sheen to it.
What do you think?
Cheers Dee x

This is fabulous! Love the crackle, and †hat beautifully detailed clay which is twisted round.....will have to definitely look into that! I agree - this is definitely Snow White territory. Thank you for such great inspiration.

This is another stunning creation, Dee - original and inspirational. Love how you've used the Fimo, and the dark shadows and burnished gilding makes this just beautiful.

What do I think??? I thinkit is AMAZING! Dee, I love this heart, and it seems that we are of one mind! I've been playing around with a few hearts myself, and decided to go ahead and post one. The others are not done. I usually don't like to peek at the inspiration, because it takes away from my creativity sometimes. But in this case I wish I had! I would have never thought to stamp into clay and you have just a fabulous job with this! I love the wonderful color and antiquing you have achieved! Bravo!
