More mixed media February challenge

This is my design project for More mixed media February challenge where the option this month is to use red.

Having bought the wooden 'home' hanging a few months ago to use for one of the MMM challenges, I couldn't find it until recently, so thought it would be good to use for the red challenge for February.

I painted the plain wooden hanging with acrylic paint, leaving one or two areas without full cover to give a distressed look, using an alcohol pen to ink the 'nooks and crannies'. I stamped randomly with an Anita hearts and script design that I've had for years, inked with memento tuxedo black. I coloured the white ribbon with a darker red alcohol pen, using this to fill in some of the hearts. Flowers are Craftime and the spacers are Prima.
