The Key to My Heart: A Valentine

Hi, everyone! After taking a short break, I am back with a little valentine.

For the sentiment and the butterfly, I used my faithful old Underwood.

The background was created from scratch, using watercolour paper, pages from an old book, and acrylic paint.

With Valentine’s Day coming up, a few challenge blogs this week are looking for something pink, red, and heart-related.

I enjoyed experimenting with the rusty texture on the key and am pleased with how it turned out. I’ll be making a tutorial on how to achieve this effect, so be sure to check my blog tomorrow.
