Winged Heart Plaque

I have been so excited for these new Archival Cast Relics and Artifacts by Prima to come out.  They are just as amazing as I had hoped, and no matter what you do to them, you can make it work.  This project is proof of that!

I started by staining a Walnut Hallow plaque I had on hand.  I followed up with an edging of glitter and then some Inka gold. The stenciled words are actually with the Inka gold too and I rather like how they turned out.

The heart was treated with many mediums, too many in fact.  In the end I coated it with super fine glitter and accepted all the bumps and texture since I had played just a little too much.  The wings were treated with silver leaf and I think it worked perfect.

Under the heart is a wooden medallion thing that I purchased at a big box store.  I also treated it with leafing and matted it with paper from the Cartographer paper line.

I used gelatos, stickels and Twinkling H20's on the top portion of the heart.  A few pieces of vintage rhinestones add a nice detail behind the tied on key.  

Beware, I am going to guess these relics will be showing up in lots of my posts!
