Heart Fridge Magnets

What have I been up to? Well following the small canvases I spotted some paper mache hearts in Hobbycraft that had magnets attached.  They are quite a good size at 10.5cm high by 10.5cm wide but small enough to decorate quickly. Would be great for those who do craft fairs and the like and they are very light weight, so despite their size they sit nicely on the fridge door without moving.

I decided to alter them as I thought they would make great little gifts with Mother's Day coming up and here are 2 of them:

I painted them both with gesso first and left to dry. This one is painted with Peeled Paint Distress ink. The flowers are stamped from a Verve set called Petals & Stems in Barn Door distress ink. Stripes are a small Hero Arts wooden stamp. Coloured the lace with the Barn Door ink too and added some bling to finish!

I painted this one with Wild Honey distress ink. Stamped Hero Arts background cling stamp Heart Flourishes (CG169) in Peeled Paint distress ink and coloured in the hearts with a prisma pencil. Finished with organza bow.

Mine are quite rustic looking and not to everyone's taste but like the small canvases......the possibilities are endless and they are big enough to stamp a greeting on!

Thanks for looking.
