Raining in My Heart

Hi Everyone

This week at Stampotique is 
Heart in your Art

I firstly got a 6" X 4" post card and snipped the corners to make a tag and washed blue distress inks onto it.  I then used blue memento Paris Dusk ink and stamped out the clouds from my Woodware set in different blue papers.

I sometimes find inspiration on the web for my ideas and this week it came from the Sizzix website from a card.

I then cut strips of blue paper (like quilling paper) and rolled one end then set these out beside each other in different lengths. I then used a small love heart punch with white cardstock and coloured the hearts with different colours of blue Promarkers.

I coloured 'Bowtie' in with blue Promarkers and added a further heart as an embellishment.  His umbrella is from the Paper Artsy Jofy 09 set and the flower cut in half to form the umbrella.  I have added a ribbon flower and bow as embellishments and included little diamantes on his brollie.  My title this week is from a Buddy Holly song


My quote this week is

Being soaked alone is cold. Being soaked with your best friend is an adventure.
Emily Wing Smith, Back When You Were Easier to Love
