I'm so grateful for everyone who linked up their shoe projects last week at Fab'n'Funky Challenges. I had so much fun checking out all the entries. Fab colouring, great layouts and super inspiration. The winner and Top 3 are on the blog right now so why not head on over for a visit.
We have a great new challenge for you today and this week it's the wonderful Pat K playing host. If you would like to be inspired and amazed - check out Pat's blog here. I love her style. Now I better let you in on our theme..
Valentine's or Hearts
Simples! Love is definitely all around this month! Our sponsor is one of my favourite stamp companies, ever! We have Lili of the Valley (LOTV) this week and they have such wonderful images and papers to lust over on their site. Click here to start lusting!
I have a wedding card this week as I went with the heart theme using a LOTV image and sentiment.
What a sweet image! I started with a 5.5" kraft card blank and added a sheet of Webster's Pages paper that I received as a free gift with a magazine last year. I wrapped some Creative Expressions cream lace around this layer and really fell in love with how gorgeous the lace looks.
My topper was stamped in Versamark and then heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder. I cut out with an X-Cut heart shaped die and then inked through with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen for a vintage feel. My sentiment is also LOTV and I simply stamped in brown ink and then cut out by hand. I inked all over with Antique Linen DI. I curled the sentiment over the edge of my table. Love this technique!
I love this image and have just realised that I bought it when I was in Glasgow for the SECC craft fair last March at the same time I bought the magazine with the free papers! Meant to be I think!
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
