I had a ball with this one, I was a bit in a whimsical mood and a new challenge was posted on the Frilly and Funkie blog ‘All you need is LOVE”
Here is what Zoe said;
Hello and welcome! Zoe here and I’m delighted to be hosting the Frilly and Funkie challenge. With Valentines just a couple of weeks away, I’ve chosen “ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE” as the challenge theme. It’s time to let cupid draw his paintbrush and create a vintage or shabby chic project with the word “LOVE” somewhere on the project. It can be the focus or just a tiny detail.
I started with the Sizzix Tim Holtz ‘Silly Monsters’ thinlits, cut from watercolor cardstock, inked up one side of embossing folder and ran through Vagabond. I then sent the die cuts through again with black packaging cardstock. I inked up the embossed areas of the monsters to tone down the white a little. Added double-sided tape to the back of the monsters and replaced voids with the black pieces. I couldn’t let the body go to waste so I offset that behind the monster.
The background is done by putting Distress Ink directly on a acrylic block (I even used a idea-ology fragment square), spritzed with water and then pressed onto TH white substrate sheet.
The quote is stamped with Archival ink using Close to my Heart ‘Doodle Alphabet’ and Love is by Recollections.
Here are some close ups of these guys …
I was trying to decide if I have a favorite but nope they are all toooo darn cute!
Thanks for viewing and have a blessed day!
