I hope you are all enjoying your weekend :)
I am playing along with a new challenge tonight, well new to me anyway! Last week I was at a local craft store hoping and praying they had memento tuxedo black ink because I just got my alcohol markers in the mail and desperately wanted to use them. You know how it is when you get new craft toys ;) Anyway, when I saw that they had it I let out s squeal of joy to which another crafter and I began laughing and chatting about.
During our conversation Rebecca mentioned she served on a couple of DT's including The Corrosive Challenge, which I had never heard of. After checking out Rebecca's blog I went over to the challenge site and found such fun :) They are a different type of blog that really pushes you outside your comfort zone. If you get a chance I hope you go check it out and also you'll want to visit Rebecca's blog, talk about a talented lady!
So the challenge is Love Bites . . . interesting no? Here is my take
I started by tracing a large chipboard heart onto white card stock. I then colored it ink pad to paper with barn door and stamped Hero Arts, Starburst Lace in aged mahogany. For the bites taken out of the heart I punched a scrap piece of paper with my scallop edge (EK Success) and traced over the heart. I trimmed the whole piece out.
The little hearts are from Hero Arts, Sweet Hearts set and are colored with aged mahogany and festive berries. All the hearts were added to the white card base with dimensional adhesive.
For the sentiment I printed it off the computer and layered it on some black before trimming it into a banner. Stardust stickles and glossy accents accent four of the smaller hearts.
I love how it looks like a lovey dovey Valentine until you really look at it :) One of the girls at work was like "That's so pretty . . . .oh?!" Hahaha too funny!
If your still with me after this super long post I appreciate it so much! Thanks for stopping in :)
