Goodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Sunday to you all. Many thanks for the fabby entries for last weeks challenge - it was grand to see some newbies too! The theme this week is a nice easy one ... and it is... HEARTS. You can interpret the theme as I have, using a heart shape, add a hearty word or add some stencilling or stamping with hearts. To join in is simples: make a little something, it can be anything you fancy. Add in the theme and some stamping and then pop back here to leave me a comment with a linky to the place you are showing your entry. If you haven't got a blog, you can join in via Facebook, simply tag my name or via emailing a small res photo to me. The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 1st March 2014.
My entry this week is one of my demo samples from Stitches... I haven't had a chance to do any crafting this week (!) and all goodly intentions of getting the Room of Stash sorted have gone out of the window! That is a job for tomorrow now methinks. Anyways, the heart is a Pronty MDF heart, covered with Teresa Collins/Creative Expressions papers and then I got going with the decorating. I did a smidge of stencilling using Texture Paste and a new That Special Touch mask. I added some stencilling and Wendy's Archival Inks for the Fleur De Lys and then spritzed the whole heart with Black Cosmic Mist (love the new Cosmic Mists... they are fab!) The floral decoration is made up of Heartfelt Creations flowers, stamped onto more of the papers, cut out and then inked with Wendy's Orange Blossom and Cornflower Archivals - don't forget, you can blend with Archivals with Cut & Dry foam :O) Smidges of Mustard Seed Distress Glitter for the flower centres and then some Embellish Your Art and metal embellies finished the floral assemblage. I added scrawled lines around the edges of the heart with a Micron pen and voila, done! This is the piece I made for Tanya, one of the CE reps, I promised her a tag last year and never got it done so this year I made sure I did something special for her!
That's all from me for today... I hope that you have a great Sunday and you like the theme this week. Thanks for looking... TTFN
