Painted Foil Heart on Valentine Card

Hi everyone.
Linda here from TheTulipCollector. Today is my first assignment as a Designer for The Bugbytes. I spent a couple days at CHA and learned several techniques that I could incorporate in my crafting. Today, I am sharing something new to me. This multi dimensional card has many layers. The ATC started with Life's Journey ATC that I gave a very light coat of Gold and Fuschia and Pink. The star of the card...the heart is a Tim Holtz heart shape covered in regular tin foil. You crinkle it up and adhere it to the cardboard. Now I knew this because I have been covering that adorable Chocolate Kiss Die from MyCreativeTime. What I didn't know what that it could be painted and look awesome!! The paint is Viva Colour Croco Crackle Paint in Gold, Viva Colour Inka Gold in Gold, Lava Red, Love Struck Red. The heart is then randomly wrapped with Burlap String. Isn't it sparkly and pretty? It coordinated beautifully with some paper in my stash that had the same color hearts amongst the clouds. Thank you for sharing in my first assignment and come visit me often and I if you leave a comment...I will do the same for you!
