All Heart....



Art Journey's challenge (AJ#6) this month is hosted by Tineke Koedam and as its soon Valentines Day this is what Tineke says ...

"Its February 2011 and time to start the sixth Art Journey Challenge with the theme 'heart shaped card'.
You've got 4 weeks to get in the mood and show us what your idea with this theme is. The deadline is on the 26th of February.
Then one participant will be randomly selected for a 10 euro’s gift certificate to shop at Art Journey! To win this gift certificate you are required to use MAINLY ART JOURNEY STAMPS. Put your new creation on your blog or Flickr (with a link to the challenge post on this blog) and leave a direct link to your blogpost in the 'Add your Link' section."


When making my card I decided to add the clear tear shaped gem, but then it wouldn't stand up of course lol, (doh!) so then I added a little 'foot', shown below, so it wouldn't topple.



I used all Art Journey stamps.

I hope you get an opportunity to join in.

Please check out the teams work on the Art Journey blog for more ideas ( Paula Whittaker and Deborah March are making their debut as team members but I'm sure you've seen their fabulous work before as they were regular challenge participants).
