ATCAS #5 - Heart

Good morning!

How are we this splendid Saturday morning? Well, it was raining all day in Athens yesterday, but I still find it splendid with its +15 degrees after a week full of snow that reached -15 degrees in Warsaw! I loved it, but still... was happy to come back home ;)

So... today we have a new challenge over at Addicted to CAS. This is what I came up with:

...And as you may have imagined, the code word for this challenge is "Heart":

And a close-up of the heart:

I used a corrugated heart as the base - but I used the back of the heart to be able to stick the hearts and pearls. I painted wood veneer hearts with silver acrylic paint and filled in the gaps with lots and lots of pearls in three sizes.

I hope you like it!

Why don't you come over at Addicted to CAS for some amazing inspiration by the design team and to play along with us? After all, Valentine's day is approaching fast! The CAS PERFECTIONIST of this challenge will get a $10 gift voucher by Annabelle Stamps:

Natasha, this is so elegant! I wondered about the hearts, as they looked like wood veneer hearts, but something was different,...
So glad you told that this is Acrylic Paint - beautiful idea. (Although I couldn't do this possibly, I love the look of would too much ;) )
How long did it take to put all the pearls in place?
Great card!
