Another competition entry for The Cupboard Trilogy

This is my second entry into The Cupboard Trilogy/Sarah Lawrence heart stamp competition. I like the mix of brown and pink so decided to stamp her hearts in pearlescent brown dew drops. I also used a Leanne Ellis stamp for the first time and coloured it in with matching promarkers. I have mat and layered the card onto pink glittery card and edged it with cream cotton lace and matted it onto cream bazill. Finished off with pink card candi. This card took me quite a while as I knew I wanted it to be 8" x 8" but couldn't quite decide how to finish it off to show the beautiful stamp in the best light. I hope you like it.

The Cupboard Trilogy: Valentines Day ....

The Cupboard Trilogy: Valentines Day ....

The Cupboard Trilogy Valentines Day challenge

So here I am as promised! Back with my latest creation. It's one of my entries into The Cupboard Trilogy Valentine's Day challenge, as a tribute to Sarah Lawrence who died suddenly in December 2011. Sarah was the owner of Craftynotions and was a well known and respected mixed media and texture artist and author and designed the stamp that came free attached to February's Craft Stamper. I have stamped and embossed the stamp 8 times in black and once in pink to make the heart stand out. I have mounted on pink card and then black card and stamped black floral swirls on the actual card before mounting the hearts. I finished off with a black grosgrain ribbon and bow. I hope you like my creation in memory of Sarah Lawrence.
