Love is in the air...



The latest Gingersnap Creations challenge is 'Romance'. The sponsor of this coming months themes is The Artistic Stamper so I used some of their new Romance collection to create the card above. I used a heart, the word love and the sequin waste open stamps ontop of a background created using sprays on a non stick surface.
The Artistic Stamper have some stamping goodies up for grabs over on Gingersnaps so why not head on over there.

I LOVE that chequered heart! It really 'pops' off the (gorgeous!) background. I've just done a 'Love is in the air' scrapbook layout for my next class... wish I'd had that heart!

That background is amazing and sets off the heart beautifully. A lovely card!

Rachel said...

What a beautiful piece. The heart's amazing. Is that real stitching or faux stitching? It's a great combination.

This is gorgeous, Jo. I love that background. It's a perfect card for that man in your life, I always think male Valentine's cards are so difficult to do, you have inspired me to try something different this year.
