Flower Market Heart

Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by.  I've a simple little creation for you today, using the wonderful Flower Market stamps (this was my first play with them) and a little wooden heart.
I used Fresco paints and crackle glaze to create the background, adding some very gentle inking around the edges, which I then clear embossed to give a hint of morning dew.
The brilliant Flower Market advertisement is stamped in Potting Soil Archival ink...
... as is the adorable little beehive.
Then I stamped the lavender around the edges in Olive Archival...
... and added two sprigs of apple blossom at the very top.
The very sharp-eyed amongst you may have noticed that the crackle looks different on some of these photos - well, some pictures are of the front of the heart, and some of the back - and the crackle behaved slightly differently on one side than the other...

I love these stamps so much that on this, my first go playing with them, I really didn't want to do anything else to them, so that's it for now!  Thanks so much for stopping by, and I'll see you again soon.

Lovely springtime hanging heart, Alison! I love these images with that subtle crackle! Certainly gives that vintage been in the yard feeling! Beautiful. Hugs!
