dt piece at anything goes, theme for the one I love..

Hey the bloggers,
Well it is challenge time over at anything goes again and this time the theme is , for the one I love also there is a fab prize of £20 from indigo blu

Quintessentially English rubber stamps, with unique and highly detailed deep etched designs – all made in England. IndigoBlu stamps have been featured on Create and Craft a few weeks ago.

so here is mine:
Make sure you pop across to lynnes @ craftden for all your crafty goodies and to Anything goes challenge to seethe fab Dt pieces and maybe pop in an entry!
So here is what I did:
I started with a limited palette as this theme is definitely not in my comfort zone,I started with a brand new set of darkroom door stamps....some DI in vintage photo and antique linen.
The background was made by colouring with DI and then over stamping with script and the postcard word stamp.The main image was stamped in DI onto pre coloured card using DI and cut n dry foam.
The roses were made using grungepaper , as were the flourishes which were over stamped in script using aged mahogany DI.

The little love letter was the script stamped onto white paper and lightly coloured then rolled and tied.
The sentiment is stamped in a two tone cosmic shimmer embossing powder and held in a Tim memo pin.
Finally, another melt pot play produced the heart,....i melted utee, then used a craftynotions mould which i had brushed with cosmic shimmer pigment..then poured the utee into the mould, left to cool and there she is...a fab heart embellishment!

hope you like the card ..found this a hard challenge, so why don't you hop over to anything goes and challenge yourselves and pop in an entry!you may even bag the prize!!!
