I could just have bought a heart shape MDF but when you have items in your stash that will work just as well use them up. I cut the shape from 3 pieces of thick card and stuck together. Covered in torn up serviettes using PVA glue and left to dry off in the airing cupboard.
My local hardware shops sells the Dulux tester pots which I find are ideal for covering and saves on using up my more expensive Jo Sonja paint tubes. I have chosen a pastel pink called Dusted Fondant. I punched two hanging holes and picked out the lettering I needed from a selection of grunge board ABC in my stash.
The finished plaque with pink lace, netting, cream fabric roses and edged with Inka Gold. Ribbon for hanging has shown up as rather a funny colour but it is in fact pale pink to match the paint.
