Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 5 February 2016

It is time for me to show you my Inspiration Post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog.

Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "LOVE".
For this project I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Red Hearts" (this image comes in a set of 4 images for the amazing price of £8.46).  I coloured the image in with my Promarker pens.

I decided to do a mixed media project.  I cut some corrugated card into a heart shape, painted with gesso and went around the whole heart with Tim Holtz's Fired Brick, Festive Berries, Aged Mahogany and Black Soot distress inks.

I then pierced two holes in it, one at the top and one at the bottom.  At the top I threaded through some ribbon to hang the project.  At the bottoms I used jewellery thread and some beads I bought from my sister many years ago and threaded this through the hole in the heart and secured.
I have used strips of backing paper from Carta Bella.

I have finished this project of with the beads, ribbon, button, stamped sentiment (which was a freebie from a magazine last year), cheesecloth and a Creative Expressions zip embellishment.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
