I love seeing all the Valentines day displays in shop windows - I know it's become a big marketing thing - just like Halloween, but both events are at a time when nothing else is going on and it sure does brighten shopping centres up!
I made this little wall hanging piece for hubby - don't know what he'll think of it, but he knows it's kept me quiet for a while lol!
I started it at the caravan and wasn't sure where I was going with it - just wanted to play with my new Tando creative cogs and the Docraft Chronology stamps! I had some corrugated card and had bought some bronze paint so painted that up first. The flowers and fabric bits were just scraps in a box I keep for making things with my grand-daughter. I cut the heart out of some Papermania paper, distress inked it and sprayed with Perfect Pearls....and then....bits of tissue paper and mop-up paper torn up to go round the edge. The cog was backed with a little bit of my Arthur book - can you see where it says "love" in the middle?
I then brought it home to finish, put the clock on the bottom(it's to do with something mushy I've put on the back that I don't want to share - Sorry!), the card letters distress inked and stamped with Kaisercraft script, came from a sheet I've had for ages, found some nice ribbon and I am quite happy with it.
I am entering it in the following challenges:
Anything but a card - Share the love
Frilly and Funkie - Lacy, Heartsy Valentines project
Thanks for looking, Chris. Oh! and I hope you have a lovely Valentines day!
