It's Monday (and I'm delighted to have today off from work)! It's time for another challenge on the Outlines Challenge Blog. This week our challenge theme is "Love is in the Air" and we are to make Valentine's creations. Make sure you play along with us this week for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate from the Outlines Rubber Stamp Company.
For my Valentine, I selected the Outlines image "Tall Be Mine" (F-811). I stamped the image onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock with Marvy black dye and colored the image with Copic markers. I cut around the image with my Cutter-bee scissors and placed the stack of hearts onto a panel of white cardstock framed with pink cardstock, with some of the hearts spilling "out-of-the box". The bee was also placed like it was flying to the pile of hearts. On the top of the tower I stamped the word "mine" (which is a portion of the image), inking with a Memento Tuxedo Black marker, and lining up that portion of the stamp with my Stamp-a-ma-jig. On the hearts and the bee, highlights of Crystal Stickles were applied. Also, some Crystal AB Swarovski Crystals (Sizes 5, 9, and 12) added some bling to the hearts and were applied with the help of Picksey-Pick Ups.
I stamped the image again, colored and cut the two hearts that are off to the side of the tower of hearts. I placed the images onto a panel of Bo Bunny patterned paper that was paper pierced and also framed with white and pink cardstock. I adhered Blossom Light Pink Baker's Twine as a small flight pattern of the bee.
