Happy Valentines Day...




Heres a hanging I made using all Paper Artsy Squiggly Ink stamps.

(edit for Lottie and Joanne...sorry the original post was a little rushed))... I stamped all the background using bleach- not too pleasant to work with because of the smell but you get used to it after a while lol, and then mounted the bleach work onto beer mats :0)









Happy Valentines Day everyone :0) xx

Oh it is gorgeous - I love the colours - and the way you have used the stamps.

Did you use bleach on them somehow? Only I spotted that a couple of the photos had bleach in the title - and I just wondered as I have not come across bleaching before.

It makes such a nice change to see something for Valentines that is not pink - but still portrays the them perfectly and does have a lovely soft pink 'running' through it. And oh those textures - its great to be able to enlarge the photos.

Fabulous idea - using beer mats for a male Valentines Day present, now there's a clever woman!

Love the colours - why do we always think of red & pink for Valentines? Well, when I say "we" of course I mean "me" :o)

Nice one, Jo! The beer mats are an inspired idea. Like me with the wine corks for the ends of my bookbinding awls, no-one knows what sacrifices we have to make for Our Art (big smile).
