ABAA Challenge


I was inspired by seeing that Jan had entered a 'Milagros' heart for the ABAA challenge and thought I would like to have a go as it was something very different, but what to use?, then I opened a little drawer and found some silver wire hearts that i had bought last year so I coloured one with alcohol inks and mounted it on gold card, then I found a (hopefully) suitable picture put it on to mount board and triple embossed it, added a gem heart and fixed it to the backing. Milagros are small religiuos charms that are found in Mexico and Peru, the word Milagros means Miracle.

I love the seascape piece - what a bind having to do it all again, but very worthwhile. The little heart charm is perfect and definitely has a Mexican feel to it.
