well it is raining here and not sure my heart is happy about it, fed up with the wet stuff and the grey, So Hels wants red at Sunday Stampers this week so here is mine:
I started by making the background using wrinkle free distress . When dry I added these heart flourishes from a very old set of stamps.Then I die cut the umbrella man, inked up Tim script in clear and embossed, using this as a resist for black soot ink which I then applied.
The floral ribbon trim, sorry cannot stop using the stuff!!!! was coloured using distress inks and so was the ribbon.
I had such fun using shrink plastic, utee and my melt pot that I made these hearts and then when dry coloured using alcohol inks.To finish I added some ideaology, well a girl just has too, doesn't she?!This is not totally my style but I am pleased with how it turned out and after all it is the playing and inkiness that counts!
I am entering this for the following competitions:
