Winged Heart Shrine

I was thrilled to be offered the opportunity to play with the new Gilded Life charms and bezels for Alpha Stamps.  There is a list of supplies from Alpha Stamps here.

The hutch is covered with Tim Holtz tissue tape and then a layer of silver gilders paste.  I liked the way I could easily manipulate and apply the tape to the different surfaces.  It made for a quick covering of the base.

It is hard to see, but the inside of the shrine is layered with blue mica flakes.  I popped the focal heart out with a few scrabble tiles so it has the illusion that it is floating in the box. 

I used images from Alpha Stamps Butterfly Collage Sheet along with lots of metal staples from Graphic 45.

To alter this focal I started off with Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap and added my images.  I also altered the metal with Vintaj Patinas and then some stickles too.  You can also see how I added silver gilders paste to the different metal pieces to help them to look cohesive. 

I just adore how this turned out.  One of my favorite pieces in a long time.  I hope you enjoyed as well!
