The Secret Is Love



"Tis a secret: none knows how it comes, how it goes:But the name of the secret is Love!" Lewis Carrol

I covered the Papier Mache heart in Gesso.


When dry I painted over the Gesso with 2 coats of Ruby Slippers, allowing each coat to dry before applying the following one.


I used masking tape to hold the Rose Stencil in place on the heart, and dabbed Snow White paint into the stencil. When dry I continued this on the other side of the heart.

I stamped Alice onto some card and added some colour to her with colouring pens. I used a clear sparkle pen to add some light sparkle to her.

I fussy cut alice and adhered her to the front of the heart with clear 3D adhesive pads.

Mardi Gras

 

There is a wonderful Blog Challenge called Words to Craft By  Each month they give you a poem to create with. This month the verse is 

"It has been said that a Scotchman has not seen the world until he has seen Edinburgh; 

and I think that I may say that an American has not seen the United States 
until he has seen Mardi-Gras in New Orleans." ─ Mark Twain

I have a friend who plays Dixieland Jazz, and he has visited New Orleans many times. I have the trumpet player stamp just to create cards for him! I added lots of streamers, stars and glitter in the traditional Mardi Gras colours. Unfortunately the photo makes it look paler and less vibrant than it is in real life.

I created this card especially for the Words To Craft By Challenge. Why not stop by and join in the challenge too!


Thank you so much for visiting me today.

Pride and Prejudice

 

This months theme at Indigoblu is All You Need Is Love.

One of English Literatures most famous romantic writers was Jane Austen. Amongst many other classic novels she of course wrote "Pride and Prejudice".I thought that it would be fitting to pay a her a special tribute, she did give us Mr Darcy after all!

You can read all the details about how I made this tribute on the Indigoblu Blog

Thank you so much for visiting.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.
