Love Book for This Thursday





This week I was asked to be the guest designer on This Thursday a new challenge blog. They sent me all sorts of goodies from their sponsor the stamp man - gorgeous moonglow washes, gold leaf, fusible fibres. This is what I came up with. The LOVE book is by SEI and was sent to me by my message board friend Sheri. I painted it with the washes, which are a gorgeous coppery glow in real life, stamped around with some heart stamps by Technique Tuesday, cut some hearts with the cricut - george cartridge, and ran them through the cuttlebug script folder then rubbed them with gold leaf. Added some fusible fibres embossed with copper (they were fun to use, you just tear pieces off, place them where you want and heat with a heat gun, it goes all lacy, and then you sprinkle with embossing powder, it's a neat effect) and finally embossed a square of chipboard with ultra thick embossing powder and copper, then pressed one of the heart stamps into it to make the embellishment. A few ribbons and I was set to go. The products were fabulous to use and although this is a departure from my usual stuff, I so enjoyed using them and am really pleased with the result. Thank you Tracey for inviting me to guest design for you.
