CACB #35


Another fortnight has rolled around already and it's time for Challenge #35 at CACB! This time the theme is Love Is All Around. You can go for any love themed occasion - wedding, valentines, anniversary, friendship etc. I've gone for  friendship for my sample this time. My bp is the lilac embossed hearts and I added the "...and two friends" sentiment before printing it off. The triple hearts is from the Love Is All Around 1 sheet and I've stamped the cat and dog into the top two hearts. The cat and dog are both rubber stamps from Anita's that are among the first I ever bought so many moons ago. I love how we can re-size digis to accomodate whatever we want them to. All of these images have been coloured with promarkers. The 'stop' for the easel is the short petal flower that I coloured with a combination of twinkling H2Os and promarkers. I painted first then went over the top with the promarkers which has the effect of strengthening the original colour while the pearlescence of the twinkling H2Os still comes through. (It's a lovely effect and I think I'll give it a go with a Santa stamp at some point, his red clothes would be lovely.) I've mounted the main image and flower onto white pearlescent paper cut out with nesties labels 4 and finished off with homemade 'card candy'/brads, punched flowers and leaves, a couple of flat back pearls and diamond stickles in the flower centre.

I'm entering my card into these challenges:
Phew! There's certainly lots of love around this week - let's hope it lasts all year! I hope you'll be able to join us for this challenge and don't forget to check out the inspiration the rest of the DT have for you - it's nothing short of fabulous!
