Going dotty! - Rhedd and Rosie's DT

Hi all,

Happy new year! It is 2014, which is of course one year more fabulous than 2013! I'm so looking forward to a fantastic year filled with crafty goodness!

Anyways, for the first creative sample of the new year, I have my Rhedd and Rosie's DT creation to share with you. The theme this week is Going Dotty, and I decided to go the non-card route with this one.
I know! Straight off the block with a non-card project... I wonder what this will spell for the rest of the year?

Well, here it is:

I took a pair of MDF hearts and covered them in spotty paper before sanding the edges down and applying vintage photo distress ink.
The flowers are WOC, though the trio of small ones started their life off yellow... I gave them the vintage photo distress treatment too, and love how it turned out.

This creation is currently hanging in my kitchen, and has already received much admiration for my daughter. Well, you know teenage girls and hearts! lol.

So, how about you? I'm sure you're all a bit dotty too... wink. So why not join in the fun at Rhedd and Rosie's and make us something to suit?

I'd like to enter this creation into the following challenges:

Altered Eclectics - Alter Something
All crafts Challenge - anything but a card

Have a fabby day folks!
