Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Facebook Group February Challenge - Sing me a Love Song

Today is the start of the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Facebook Group Monthly Challenge.

The topic for the challenge this month is "sing me a love song".  As soon as I saw the topic I knew which song it had to be.  When my husband and I were first going out we spent a lot of time apart as were chefs.  Our song was "I've been missing you" by Chris de Burgh and we even had it played for the first dance at our wedding.  Since hearing that song I got to like other songs by this artist and therefore the song I've used for this challenge is "Lady in Red" by Chris de Burgh.

I decided to make a journal double page spread.

I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "It's all about love" and coloured the image in with my Promarkers.

I used various red/pink distress inks to colour the pages.  I then used a mask and inked through with the same colours.  I printed out the lyrics for the song and then used a tearing ruler around this and the image.  I then used some of my new music stamps, a heart Visible Image stamp, a "The One" sentiment by Visible Image, some hearts cut out from a Debbi Moore magazine, die-cut some hearts out of vellum and Papermania Glitterations.

I am entering these journal pages into the following challenges:
