Sculpted Hearts

Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog     Make My metal Altered
Stampin' Royalty     SR #133-Anything Goes

We're finally in the consistent triple digits here in N. TX. so this is a very good time to spend the afternoon in my air conditioned studio. As usual I've got a few projects in the works. The first one I have ready this afternoon is for the Funkie side of Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog. 
I had to ponder this one awhile, but finally came up with free hand sculpted hearts made out of modeling wire mesh. I still had this sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping in my mind, the only thing I left off was a sentiment. I wanted the sewing and the hearts to take center stage on this card.
I am also entering this in the Anything Goes challenge at Stampin' Royalty because even though you don't have to use only Stampin' Up products most everything on the card is Stampin' Up.
I've just recently discovered this modeling wire mesh and I'm finding it very fun and versatile to work with.
Click on the links above and jump in the fun while you're staying cool or staying in out of the rain depending where in the world you are ;-)

Happy Creating--

This is so cool. The stitching adds so much texture and I love those hearts you made. The detail of the piercing around the label is a great touch.

Wow Bev this is fantastic. I love the creativity in this card. I'm chuckling at your comments about the heat because we've just come back from a Mediteranean holiday in the same kind of heat to rain and cold here in Vancouver. I'm feeling pretty wistful for the sun right now.

Wow, wow and wow again, Beverly! Your card is a stunner. I LOVE those handmade wire hearts - very, very cool! I've actually never seen anything like that product and am very intrigued by it. Love the way you used a metallic thread as an added metal. So glad to have you joining in the fun with us this time around at Frilly and Funkie.
