Paperboy Seeks Sweetheart!

It is the first Blog Hop of 2014 for Artistic Outpost and it is designers choice, so stop by and visit all the DT members for some wonderful art! There is also a good week left to join in the January Referral Program for a chance to win a gift certificate and be amount the Top Three.
Gerrie, Lisa, Suzanne, Tracy, Linda, Alison, Terry (me), Kate
I decided to go with a little "LOVE" interest with Valentine's Day fast approaching and had lots of fun mixing the Paperboy, Secretary Pool and Apothecary stamps!
An 8x6 inch canvas was covered with burlap fabric and I masked off the edges and applied red paint for a frame. The corrugated cardboard packaging was slightly splattered with some red paint and shaded around the edges.
The "Love" was stamped and individually cut (love that alpha stamp).
Hearts were painted and crackled. Oh yes a sunny day, so a little shinny!
Doesn't the Paperboy look quite at home on the label space for the love potion bottle?
The heart was a leftover piece I had cut to use for a mask which was covered in paint, distressed and then the "sweethearts" were stamped along with a little bit of sweetness!
Thank you for stopping by and joining in the first 2014 AO Blog Hop!  Have a fabulous finish to the week!

Such lovely valentine ideas and the bottle is gorgeous with paper boys photo on it. I wonder which of the sweethearts has caught his eye? The red and Kraft colour combination is very striking and I love how you framed the hessian. Sunshine? What's that? Lol
