Shabby Chic Heart Set

Morning and we have a new challenge at 613 Avenue Create which is ATG/Shabby Chic chosen by Sheryl.
I bought a set from The Works last year (£1) 3 different sized MDF hearts,papers and matching paper embellishments which were a bit flimsy but hey ho £1 so no complaints--
got as far as covering the hearts with the papers -decided they were a bit bright so stamped some music score from Kanban onto tissue paper and covered the hearts with PVA and the tissue paper-more PVA and distressed the edges.Added hessian/daisy ribbon/paper flower/hessian flowers and butterfly/fibres/pearls/lace/diecut flowers and ribbon to hang-all from stash.
The chipboard circle was treated the same way and stamped a sentiment from Sheena Douglas-distress inked and cut with a sizzix die.
