Sweet Love Hearts


At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Love is in the Air .We have the fabulous A Day For Daisies as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

I went with having a try at something new using this fab A Day For Daisies image.I saw  this super project for a Pop-Up Box Card at SplitCoast Stampers and thought this image would work well with it – besides I love these sweets!Always have to get myself a pack when I buy some for the kids.Takes me right back to my childhood 🙂 I coloured up Love Hearts with some soft pastel pencils as these sweets have quite a chalky texture.Plus it helped to keep the colours more muted.I chose card and papers in pastel shades to tone in with the image.I printed the sentiments on my ‘puter then die cut them.Two of the buttons were adhered to strips of acetate to give a little bounce and dimension along with an extra one added to the bottom sentiment.This was a lot of fun to make and dead simple too!Well,it had to be – it was me doing it after all 😉
