Still have love on my mind and the doctor is in the house and writing those prescriptions for love! You know the funny thing is that I am not at all a Valentine's Day kind of person. I actually don't like that it has become so commercial, but if my DH is thinking about buying me something, I hope it is something new from CHA!!!! Only kidding! Lisa's Bloggers Challenge is all about "Altering" and for the first time I am joining The Stamp Man Challenge and they are looking for us to "Embellish It." All stamps are from Artistic Outpost, the Apothecary collection and will be linked up to their "Shades of Red" challenge and there is a prize.
I cut a tag from from an old cardboard box and of course torn off some bits, which was then painted with Delta's Pearl Gleams. Once dried, I used my Barn Door Distress Stain and went over parts of the cardboard tag. The stain took well and the metallic color of the Pearl Gleams came right through, so I was happy. All images were stamped and cut, shaded, etc. The shrinky dink hearts were colored with alcohol inks and stamped with "Love Potion #9," before shrinking. I did rub the stamped ink off two of the hearts, using a technique from Mr. Holtz. The print is tiny, but it can be read much better than in the photo. The flower and ribbon were sprayed with Santa Baby Glimmer Mist.
Well I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I can't believe it is already Friday and have no idea what happened to this week. I did a project earlier this week, but can't show you that until next Saturday, but that is about it for me this week in the crafty world! Thanks a ton for today's visit, which I so appreciate!
Art for arts sake .....
