OK, love is not just around the corner, but with us at all times. The people in my life that I love is a 24 hour a day event, but we all enjoy that extra touch of sweetness and love!! For GM 32, Linda has us reviewing the 12 Tags of Christmas and picking one of our favorites, but using the techniques for a non-Christmas-y work of art. If you have not been to Linda's house (blog), go check out that girl's flowers! Now the lovely folks at Simon Say Stamp and Show is all about a "Red Letter Day," so between the two challenges, I knew I would be doing a Valentine's Day theme! So here is my non-Christmas-y work of art using a Red Letter (Number)!!
Tag #11, which involved making your own embellishments using shrink plastic, UTEE and alcohol inks. I also did the background as in the instructions, well so to speak! The background and cupid stamps are from Tim's newest release that I won from Stamper's Anonymous, which I was so excited to play with! I clear embossed the large word background stamp and then inked it up! Covered the 14 with Stickles and shaded the edges. The red shrink hearts were cut from Tim's Movers and Shapers, colored with alcohol inks and then baked and coated with UTEE. The ticket, also a Tim stamp, was colored with markers and then stamped. I stamped the cupid with black craft ink and then clear embossed and cut him out!!!!!!!!!!!. I really like how this card turned out. I can't wait to buy the cupid die, because it sure beats cutting out by hand!
