Well, the hearts are done. Photographed badly. And posted. So no matter how many times I panic over them, or how often the nagging doubt creeps back, there's nothing else I can do. Now, if you are involved in the swap, please forgive me for previewing them here. But I reckon it may be easier on you if I dilute the horror by exposing them here...you can keep coming back then, and the shock won't be so great when you get one!
So they're wooden hearts painted and glittered on the back, and on the front I've used blue pearl gloss paper, old book pages and pink glitter to loosely 'represent' the Union Jack. I mean loosely of course, and I mean no disrespect. They are glittery to within an inch of my life, and I think individually, nestled in the low light and green fronds of a christmas tree, they may be OK. Of course, I can't photograph them under those conditions - I'm about a fortnight away from putting up a tree, for a start!
A badly lit close up doesn't help,but shows the vintage-y creased look I was playing for...the pink St George's Cross (for want of a less serious description!) is done with Glossy Accents so adds relief, and also is more 'scribbly' than it looks.
I think that's enough excuses. Now, I have 10 hearts left over. All painted by Miss Dunnit on one side with red and gold, a couple are glittered on the other side. All have a pair of holes drilled in them - as per the pics! If you want them, let me know.
