My Heart's All Aflutter


Time for another challenge over at Tuesday Alchemy, and this week's theme is "My Heart's All Aflutter."  Your project must contain hearts AND/OR things with wings.  How fun!  I loved this challenge and knew exactly what I was going to do because I had the perfect stamp with which to do it.  There are prizes involved, and these will be from A Creative Need (3 digital images), Bugaboo Stamps (7 digital images) and LEJ Designs (4 digital images).  So hurry on over and start playing - you have two weeks to get crafty!
My card was made using the digital stamp "Letters" from A Creative Need.

The image was colored with Copics and a small clear rhinestone heart was adhered in the middle.  The wings are grungeboard, covered in metallic gold paper with a bit of glitter added to them.

All of the papers, including background, letter background, and rose images, are from Gecko Galz with a little glitter added.

The "Love" stamp was heat embossed with my own blend of embossing powders and glitter.

Another rose peeking out.

A seam binding "messy" bow with a vintage button.  I dyed the ribbon using my new Copics airbrush system - can you spell F.U.N.?  And it got the ribbon the exact salmon-y color I wanted it to be.  At last!

And that, dear readers, is my card for this week's challenge.  Please pop on over to see what the other lovely Design Team have come up with and join us - it's a fun challenge and we'd LOVE to see what YOU create!

Have a lovely day, and happy crafting!
