Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Tuesday & Happy Valentine's Day!

Today I am posting the gift I made for Wolfgang for Valentine's Day:

I used the back side of an artist's canvas and covered the bare wood with Distress Paint. One sheet of the Paris DSP was slid inside the frame. I distressed and hand-cut (around the pretty flowers and bird) the second sheet, then glued it to the frame. The black on this paper (from J's) is flocked. I wanted to create a postcard-like picture so I sized pictures from our trip and typed the text in Word.

Other supplies used: Basic Black & Pink Pirouette CS, Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Accents, Trinkets (the lock has the fleur de lis on it--thanks Diana!), OCL The Journey & SU Bliss stamps, Vanilla Rosettes (dyed pink), and pearls.

This week's OCL challenge theme is vintage love, so I'll be linking this project to the OCL challenge.

Thanks for stopping by.

Oooh, what a wonderful gift. I bet Wolfgang loved it. ( I would) Love the paper and all those little handcut details.
