It's Friday again. Means another challenge over at Tellen's Place. This week the challenge is for you all to show us your hearty creations. With Valentine's day only 10 days away, I know this won't be hard to do for you all. The Divas have done their usual and made some fantastic projects to inspire ... if you needed it.
For my example I used the two goth love birds. Coloured using pencils adding a little chain detail with silver gel pen and ink distressed round them. Backed onto black. The heart paper is from the Halloween Bride set from Crafty Chaos. Slightly changed digitally to make the hearts a pink colour.
The was then layered onto a dark purple paper from that set, ink distressing again with black then onto plain purple paper. The roses are hand made using some 2tone chiffon, the same material being used for the "ribbon" detail at the bottom. I attached the chain length with brads to tie in with the image adding a "forever" heart that was left behind when my daughter moved out. A relic of those teenage BFF gestures. All this was backed onto a black CS base.
That's about it for my card. Don't forget to visit the other Divas and leave some love. Then post your heart projects for us to come and see. The challenge winner not only gets to choose 3 images from the shop but gets to be Guest Designer next month.
