New life plaque

While I was at the classes with Dina Wakley earlier in the year I started decorating a tile that I didn't have time to finish. I didn't like it very much and so decided to use it as the background for another piece. I added some more paint to the tile and then collaged on the butterflies (from Tim Holtz tissue paper). I then stamped on some script using light brown ink. I  then painted the heart a dark turquoise - the same colour as the base of the tile. Once dry I applied crackle glaze and then a layer of the sandy colour - the same colour as the top layer of the tile. As the paint dried it crackled. I then painted the little chipboard flowers and butterflies and attached them, with the letters and keys, to the plaque. Done! I just have to decide where to hang it now.

... and now it's a really gorgeous tile with fantastic details and I think it'll be a beautiful eye catcher on a worthy place.
