It seems to be that time of year again – people think of love and romance. I am not usually a sentimental and romantic person, but I seem to have accrued quite a few crafty things which include hearts and roses. It seems only natural that I have play with them.
I decided to keep things quite simple, a couple of layers – very unlike me usually – as I felt the embossing folder created such a beautiful background it seemed a shame to hide it.
The background embossing is a pinpoint roses from Sue Wilson/Creative expressions. The detail is amazing, and I really like the way the dots between the roses don’t leave an emptiness. As you can see, I have varied how I used the background, and how I used the sentiments – different shapes, in different positions. I also added some red ribbon as a border to a couple of the sentiments, sticking them down at the back of the card.
The stamped image is from Stampin Up, and comes with a co-ordinating die which I have used in previous cards. I added some clear ‘drops’ for some detail, and also a dazzler which I coloured slightly with my red inks.
I particularly like the sentiment. It could be for a dear friend, or for your ‘other half’, as I feel it portrays feeling and emotion which can be used in many ways.
I am managing to have a little play this weekend, so even though this is quite a quick posting, I am sure I will have more for you over the next few days. It’s been long days at work this past week, and hubby has been fighting a flu virus – not particularly successfully – so time has been limited.
I am entering this into the ‘Simon Says Stamp’ Colour of Love challenge.
