Forever in my Heart – Cathy Cafun

Hi everyone,


Cathy here today sharing a pretty canvas created with some of the new release Dusty Attic chipboard designs and one of the new Impact Titles.

“Forever in my Heart”

 I am in love with the new industrial chipboard designs which are perfect for masculine or feminine grunge/vintage themed layouts and just the thing for steampunk inspired creations.  This month I have created a canvas using the Industrial Hearts and teamed it with one of the new Impact Titles ‘Forever in my Heart’.

To tie in with my heart theme, I used Prima Matte Gel Medium with the sweet Mini Heart Stencil.  Once dry, I misted over the stencilled background with Lindy’s mists in silver and coral tones.






 The Industrial Hearts chipboard pieces were first coated with gesso, then whilst the gesso was still wet I coated with Stampendous aged silver embossing powder and heat set.


To add a bit of dimension, I layered a few of the Mini Cogs, which I embossed with Lindy’s Kaiser Rudolf Russet.  I then swiped over a touch of Copper Inka Gold, and topped with a few pearls.

For a touch of contrast colour, I tucked in sections of Wildgrass #2 in amongst the fussy cut flowers.  The wildgrass chippies were altered by coating with gesso, then adding a coat of Little Birdie Lime Crush Tinted Metallic Paint.

 The new release Impact Titles are so versatile and there are so many to choose from!!  Keeping to my heart theme I have used the ‘Forever in my Heart’ impact title.



To alter the title I coated with gesso, then added a coat of Vicki Boutin Iridescent Glaze.  Once dry, I lightly swiped the edges with DecoArte Metallic Lustre in Polished Coral.
