This week at Simon Says Stamp and Show, we want you to Show Some Love. So are you tired of my vintage Valentine's Day makes yet? I hope not, because I am loving making them. I was going to say three and out, but I think you just might see a few more vintage Valentines from me before the big day.
So how about showing us some LOVE this week over at Simon Says Stamp and Show? That shouldn't be too hard, right? Everybody is doing Valentines this week so get with the program and get your LOVE project entered. Our fabulous sponsor, Simon Says Stamp, is giving away a $50 gift certificate to some lucky random winner, and I do mean lucky! I wish I could throw my name into the drawing because I would LOVE to have a $50 shopping spree at Simon Says Stamp. Have you seen all the amazing new Tim Holtz products that are being introduced at CHA? Simon Says will have them real soon.
Okay, enough already and on to the dets. My images are from a Luna Girl CD that I have had forever. I fiddled around with PhotoShop Elements and managed to erase their backgrounds and then layered them over a vintage post card. After liberally smearing them with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, I also stamped a few image stamps around the edges for good measure, most of which were from the Tim Holtz Urban Grunge and Odds and Ends sets. I dyed some white lace with Broken China Distress Ink, which I also used to make the handmade flower, to sponge over the grunge heart and to stamp the LOVE stamp. The heart and wings are cut from Grungeboard and I added a little element made from a felt flower, a silk, flower, a ribbon flower and some cheese cloth.
I also had to add a multi-layered paper flower cut with the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die (gee, I hope that die never wears out. Maybe I should purchase a back up - LOL!). I really liked the fact that this vintage Valentine wasn't in the traditional red or pink colors.
Now go get busy and show us some LOVE over at Simon Says Stamp and Show. You just might win a $50 shopping spree at Simon Says Stamp!
I want to give a warm welcome to all my new followers and a heartfelt thanks to those who come here day after day. I can't tell you how much your support means to me and how encouraging all your lovely comments are. I LOVE you all!
