Loved, Loved, Loved this challenge! This week at Awfully Big Art Adventure the challenge was to create a Milagros Heart. It is a religious icon of sorts, popular in Latin America. (You can get more information here.)
I was inspired almost immediately! I have to admit that I am enthralled with the Latin American culture. But could a gringa like me do justice to this theme?
I created the ATC you see above. I love the way it turned out. For once it matched exactly what was in my head!
I used chipboard hearts and covered the bottom one with red and gold glass glitter. For the top one I first covered it with patterned paper, used a rub on from Hambly, and then a vintage button I had in my stash.
I used the hot glue gun to adhere the mini pearl garland around the edge and cut out the flames from chipboard covered in gold paper. Stuck it all on a card and here it is!
I added the picture below to show the different layers.
