Romance/Valentine theme on Let's Ink it Up.
I've made this little piece for the current Let's Ink it Up Challenge.
The background uses the Paper Blending technique by Liesbeth Fidder in the March issue of Craft Stamper, I used various script, music and ruler stamps on it. The die used to cut it out is from Paper Artsy.
I die cut a chipboard heart using a Sizzix die and coloured it with Victorian Velvet distress ink and Creme de rouge Tattered Angel spray ink. I silver embossed some script across it.
The flower is made with book pages cut with Tim's tattered florals die and sprayed with Creme de rouge and gold Tattered Angels spray inks. A pearl brad helped to assemble it.
The sentiment is a Wendy Vecchi stamp.
I finished off the edges with silver and graphite Inka Gold.
The pale colours make a nice change for me - I love them on other people's work but I can never quite pull it off myself, so very pleased!
Hope your weekend has been relaxing - all we seem to have done is eat out - ooops - diet on hold for yet another week. X
