Well love is in the air with the approach of Valentines day on the 14th and it's no exception over at Crafts4eternity this week. Our theme for this weeks challenge is
it doesn't have to be a Valentines project but must feature a "Love" theme.
I have resorted to my much loved Stampotique stamps for this one.
I have used another gelli print background for this one, I promise I'll stop soon.
My image is "Spider Girl" from Stampotique but I have cut off the spider that hangs down from her hand and replaced it so she is holding heart balloons..
I first saw this technique on Trish Latimer's blog Here and then she later published the technique in the Craft Stamper magazine. Simply twist wire into what ever shape you want, on this occassion hearts. I painted some 7Gypsies tissue paper with papersrtsy Red bus paint, laid the hearts on it, and then filled with crackle glossy accents and left to dry. Once dry just cut them out and added Chit Chat stickers saying "I Love You".
Here you can see her holding the heart balloons, the ends of the wire I have pushed through the paper under her hand so they move about freely and stand away from the card to give them dimension.
I finally added machine stitching to ground her onto the page and added a border to the outside of the page.
So why not pop over and join us at crafts4eternity and share with us your "Love" inspired project.
