Fashionably Late!

Hello everyone, I'm here slightly later than planned with my DT project for Fashionable Stamping Challenges as I couldn't take a pic yesterday as the light was too bad and today we had too much sunshine would you believe! My usual photography spot was bathed in sunshine most of the day and it was actually 8 degrees too, so much better then the minus temperatures lately.
Brenda and Joanna have come up with the theme for this fortnight and with Valentine's Day just around the corner, what else could it be but Show Some Love.
I've made a little wall hanging piece for my project, using the adorable little cupid in window stamp by Lost Coast Designs again as he's such a perfect image for love themed creations.

I cut a heart shape out of recycled greyboard and painted it with light green and pink acrylic paints, then used a flourish stencil to add flourishes in olive green.
I stamped the cupid image with Memories black ink on white card, coloured the image with Promarkers and then cut it out to leave a narrow border which I went round with a grey Promarker.
I then stamped some of the flowers from Crafty Individuals Elements stamp set CI - 206 Flower Heads with brown ink and coloured these with Promarkers and cut them out. I shaped the flowers with a large embossing ball tool.
To assemble my little piece of artwork, I stamped the lovely text from Paper Artsy Hot Pick HPXT04 with black at the top and swiped with some white ink to soften the effect. I added the image panel and flowers as you see with a foam tape. I added a touch of glitter to the edges of the flowers for some sparkle and finished off with a hanger made from pink Broderie Anglaise cotton ribbon.

The Design Team have an amazing collection of artwork on the catwalk this fortnight and we have a lovely Guest Designer too, Chris of Imagination and Inspiration Are Wonderful Things so do pop over for a look.

Hoping that you've had a lovely weekend.
Hugs, Fliss xx
