pretty paper hearts


I recently found another challenge blog, pretty paper hearts, so I had to give it a try. The challenge is to use a flower stamp, polka dots and the colour red. I was recently given some of these rub on photos by Carol which she got from QVC and I have been wanting to have a play with them, so I decided to make a quick asymmetric heart tag for this theme. I used a circle thing that you put on the bottom of furniture to stamp some circles in distress ink, but I didn't think they stood out enough, so I added some glitter polka dots as well. I made these by punching circles in stix2 sheets (also from QVC donated to me by my mother-in-law)then sprinkling with glitter. I remember now why I don't use loose glitter, it's everywhere!!!

  8. Love the heart, Joanne. I have got to make some tags, and I am very inspired by the shape you have created :D Lovely stamping, and I know what you mean about glitter- I bought a set of twelve, used them once and remembered why I hadn't used them for years! My DS (then a baby) was covered in glitter for days LOL!
