Other Supplies

Pack of playing cards, Sanding paper, Poster board 8.5" x 11", Six large tags with string, Black permanent thin marker, Wooden Pallet, Three mini clothespins, Hot glue, Water basin, Paper towels, Foam plate

Instructions

HEARTS

  1. Sponge the poster board with a gradation of color from Quinacridone Red to Indian Yellow, Dioxazine Purple to Prussian Blue. Using the end of your paintbrush, scratch a rough crosshatch pattern in various areas. Let dry.
  2. When dry, stencil hearts over the gradated colors with White and Pink (Quinacrodone Red mixed with a little white). Be sure to overlap and change directions with the stencil. Let dry.
  3. Using the download sheet as a guide, cut six hearts out of the poster board and sponge around edges with Sepia.
  4. Cut six words from the download sheet. Using the liner brush, paint the edges with Sepia. Glue one word in the center of each heart. Set aside.

PLAYING CARDS

  1. Choose six playing cards and lightly distress with sanding paper. Using flat edge brush, paint Sepia around card edges and blend with fingers to give aged look.

TAGS

  1. Using the flat brush randomly dry brush the transparent paints all over the tags.
  2. Write cursive lettering across the top of the tags and draw simple embellishments across the bottom of the tag with the black marker. Sponge edges of tags in white to distress.

ASSEMBLY

  1. Glue the one heart to each of the prepared playing cards. Glue one playing card to each of the six tags.
  2. Paint the pallet White and spray lightly with Bright Pink and Bright Blue sprays.
  3.  Arrange the tags in any order you desire. Hole-punch the bottom of the top tags and tie the bottom tags in place.
  4.  Hot glue mini clothespins to the top to the pallet and clip the cards in place.
