I got a slate heart from Calico crafts ages ago.. I sort of love natural products so just wanted it. and once I had it, I didnt want to spoil it by doing things to it. however.... since I now have half a dozen slate roof tiles (courtesy of some high winds and storms) .. i felt i could let go the heart and just get on and play around... I've tried two styles so far (I only had one tile so i did one style on the front and the other on the back just to see how it worked out.
the first is simply stamped on with moonlight white "brilliance dew drop" ink. the second was coloured using masking tape, the same white dewdrop ink and an ocean blue coloured chalk ink. I used a few stamps from the Lille set... (got distressed cus I seem to have lost the three little stars. i bet they were stuck to my sleeve and I went shopping with it or something) .. anyhoo... stamped on the slate and added some red and white gingham.
its not exactly "stars and stripes" but it has a bit of an Americana feel to it.
I can't wait to introduce you to ...........
