Sunday Stampers week 244 - Tuesday 12th February

Hello Friends,

It's time for my project for this week's Sunday Stamper and this week Hels Sheridan has set the theme of Love and Hearts, so here is my contribution...

 I started off by embossing an 8x8 card blank, using the Venetian M-Bossability folder. For the main image I took a flat canvas board, gave it a coat of gesso  and inked it with a mixture of Fired Brick, Mustard Seed,Victorian Velvet and Tattered Rose distress inks. I stamped the 'Love'  and the hearts from Creative Expressions Valentines set 3. The word is stamped direct on to the canvas and heat embossed in gold. I stamped the hearts on black card and again heat embossed in gold. I added a band of hessian, some ribbon and a tiny black button across the card and placed the hearts on top with 3D foam pads.

The canvas is mounted on some linen card before placing on the base card.

Hope you like it!
