Hearts & music ATC

Hi - just thought I'd share this ATC with you today.
The theme over on Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge is hearts.
I have never had much luck using texture paste - don't know why, but I never seemed to have any success with it. I saw someone use some ordinary filler so thought I'd give it a try.
I went into my favorite shop & got a HUGE tub for a pound - and after trying it out on this ATC I think I will be using it again.
I remembered a music stencil I had that was a freebie from a magazine ages ago. I placed this onto the ATC & spread my filler over it. Was too impatient to let it dry naturally - so out came my heat tool! I was really pleased with the result.
I inked all over this using frayed burlap Distress Ink, then around the edges with barn door DI.
I die cut the hearts from some card I had inked & edged with black ink.
Placed these using foam pads.
The wooden heart embellishment (another of my poundshop finds! A large reel of wooden beads & hearts on twine & 'leather'.) just finishes it off I think.
Thanks for stopping by,
Bev xx
