More hearts

Kim (eclecticPaperie) has issued the latest Make Art challenge (Studio 490/Wendy Vecchi)...use hearts in your work.  A randomnly chosen winner will be given a $25 gift certificate to The Funkie Junkie.  With all the new products that were recently released at CHA who wouldn't want this????

I chose to finish the back of a specialty stamping paper page from one of Wendy's previous classes.  The colors really pop and the images appear to be 3-D when you see this in person.

Studio 490 stamp sets: Life & Art LCS010, Love to Make Art LCS029, Art For You LCS093, Coneflower (S-I S-I)

Studio 490 stencils:  old ledger, all occasion sentiments, classic words, honeycomb, checkmate

Sizzix: alphanumeric thinlits dies

Ranger:  Black Fude Ball pen, distress inks, distress stains, archival ink, distress paints, specialty stamping paper

Studio 490 gold metallic embossing paste and Clearly For Art (bee)

Miscellaneous: black card stock scraps, silk ribbon, old book page

Finished page is approximately 4.25" x 6.5"

I've been encouraged to enter this piece into the 'Unruly Paper Arts' monthly quest for reader art.  This month's prompt is 'heartfelt'.  One winner is randomly chosen by a computerized program.  This month the prize is a mystery package full of crafting goods compliments of Unruly Paper Arts.
