Valentine Plaque

I decided I wanted to make something new to add to my valentines vignette but I wanted something easy and quick! As I was browsing hobby lobby I came across this wood heart and thought it would be fun to make a wood plaque. Here are my supplies (minus the glue I used to attach the medallion on the heart).
 First off, I watered down some white craft paint and whitewashed my heart. I want it to look similar to the shutters I made with the wood grain showing through.
 While that dried, I took some white and red paint and mixed it to make a nice pink. I painted the medallion and then went over it with a dark color and wiped it off so it just stayed in the shadows.
 After they were both dried, just use a little glue(I used liquid nails) and stick the medallion on center. There you have it! This could be cute in a frame, or hanging from ribbon. I am just using a picture stand, but I think I need to paint it. The black seems too harsh. I will post my full valentine vignette soon!
