A Piece of Altered Art

Retro Cafe Art Galler is having a contest. The contest is to create a piece of art for Valentine's Day art using at least one item that they sell in their store. I created this item with Gold Stickles surrounding the diamonds. I started with a basic canvas from Michaels and added some watercolor primer to create a surface for some Distress inks and Starburst stains. I added a nice pile of embossing powder and stamped with a Tim Holtz stamp in the top corner. I used some Basic Grey rub-ons, gold ink, Jolee's stickers, a stencil, acrylic paint, Prima flowers and some charms covered in Lindy's embossing powder. The letters are from a DCWV stack.

If anyone is interested this piece of art is for sale.


  1. Celina, hope you win. Awesome creation!

  2. Great creation indeed! You asked me a queation about my blood stains on my Valentine's cards, I used Adirondack Alcohol ink for that.

  3. Love all the gorgeous color you added on this piece!
