Love...Cherish...Adore - An Altered Hoop

Hi Peeps,

Today is my 8th year of "Togetherness" and what better way to express my heart!
Hence, this little handmade gift :)

If you are following me on IG, would have seen sneak peeks by now :D

Its a mini hoop of 8" inch width across.
Primed with Prima Chalk board paint - Sand.

Took 300gsm watercolor paper, mounted on a thick chipboard and measured the outer circumference of hoop and cut it.

Primed the watercolor paper with gesso, then used Prima Grunge grid stencil with Prima modelling paste.

Used cockleberry coral, Gold LSG sprays and misted liberally and heatsetting it at every interval.

Couple silhouette from Cheerylynn designs were taken on a white cs, lightly sponged with tea dye DI, and clear embossed it using UTEE clear Ep.

Kaisercraft cherish stamp is stamped randomly on the surface using Black archival ink and Prima texture clear stamp is used for all the black stamped textures on the edges of the surface.

A crocheted lace on the hoop is glued using hotglue gun and floral spray is made using few large roses, hip roses, stick pollens, cherrylynn ivy florish die leaves. A large paper pieced butterfly is added near it.

A pink tulle added on the surface with the couple silhouette on top.

Spellbinder vines of passion heart diecut taken and modelling paste is applied liberally. Misted with Ruby red mistries spray. Then clear embossed using UTEE Ep. Few pearls are added on top of it.This added near to the couple silhouette.

IBS sweet valentine sentiment is stamped on vellum, adhered to white cs and then added to the surface. A resin cabochon and an organza white ribbon added to the hoop for the added interest.

Hope you like it!
