All You Need is Love

Hel's Sunday Stamper challenge is another Beatles-inspired title appropriately for Valentine's Day.


I started by mixing some white and red paint (Claudine Hellmuth) on my craft mat - in truth it's pinker than I intended, I should have added some more white - I painted a square of sticky back canvas and when it was dry, stamped this "Let Love Bloom" stamp from Paper Inspirations in black on the canvas.  I stuck that on a coaster, added some silver hearts and some bling to the flower centres.  I added some rock candy distress paint round the edge of the canvas, though it doesn't show up in the pic, but it adds a bit of a sheen.

To find something to finish it with/on I was rummaging through one of my boxes of background papers - this is from Paperartsy's rum and raisin set - I made a vellum scroll with a french script stamp and tied it with some silvery ribbon.  For the final extra I found two white fabric flowers which I swooshed with some worn lipstick DI, T!m's small flourish stamp  and some glitter, and added a small pink prima flower and pink brad to the centres and stuck them with 3d foam dots.

Happy Valentine's Day - even to us singletons (see my post from yesterday.

I am also submitting this for the Alphabet challenge - P is for Pink this week, and the new Stampotique challenge site - which is "love" this week.

Have a Happy Crafting Week.
