A Heart for You ...


Tuesday is my new posting day for PaperWorksCo and it's Recipe Tuesday.  This means it's a challenge day and there is a 'recipe' to follow for your creation.

Today's recipe is:-  Stitching (Faux or Real), 2 papers & ribbon/lace

I was inspired by a previous PWCO post  to look at my stamps with 'new eyes' and see other creating possibilities with the rubber.  And this is just what I've done with my card today.  This RAM 'A Magical Christmas' came to mind and when I looked at the stamp, I thought, "Mmmm, the snow globe could be cut out and replaced with a heart".  So that's exactly what I did ... do you think it worked?

The image is coloured with copics.  She is surrounded by snow & snowflakes and in hindsight (and if I did the card again) I would refrain from inking them up.  However, the deed was already done so I got creative with my heart punch and created heart & gem confetti which I make sparkle with stickles!  I embossed the heart with the D'vine Swirls folder.  The paper is Bo Bunny 'Bee Mine', lace is from stash and the sentiment is Hero Arts.


Thanks for coming by and popping onto my blog today.  It's really great to see you here and I hope you can find the time to leave a comment - it is always very much appreciated.  I also hope you're able to pop over to PWCO and join in with the challenge fun.

Hugs,
Danielle x
