All you need is Love

Today Hels has gone back to an old theme - Love - for her 150th Sunday Stampers challenge - this was her first theme too - and it's also her 1000th post - whoo hoo Hels!  to celebrate she has some fabulous candy on offer - check the side bar for details and be sure to take part.

Hels' wants us to use some favourite products or designers we love - well, that led me to Tim and Wendy!!

I started with this piece of chip by Maya Road (I think) .....
...and ended with this - I covered it in some paper from the shabby chic paperstack, washed with a layer of watered gesso.
I stamped and cut out loads of the mini hearts from the 'In love with art' set, the sentiment is from 'Art inspirtion'

Sprayed perfect pearl 'heirloom gold' over the hearts.











I used fired brick distess (stain and ink) on the hearts which I initially grouped in fours, then found 3 sets of them made a full circle so fixed them to some scrap grungeboard and fixed to the base.  Added some threaded buttons and idea-ology


I have also managed to fit this to the latest Everything Wendy Vecchi yahoo group challenge - 3 buttons and a dimensional grunge piece.
As you can see I got too impatient to wait for the glossy accents to dry before taking the photos!!

So pretty, I love how you made that flower Helen.

Thanks for your comment today - if even an uber super hero stamper like you gets ink on their stamps... there is hope for me yet *g*
