Hugs & Kisses

Hi crafters!  I started with the Stained Glass mask and taped it to a piece of white card.  I used Clear Texture Paste through the mask.  While the mask was still in place, I sprinkled Zesty Lime,Beyond Blue and Teal Marine Pixie Sparkles all over the mask.  I very lightly spritzed it with water to activate all the powder, then removed the mask.  I set it aside to dry overnight.  Once dry, I used the Noble Decorative Heart die to cut an aperture in the centre.  I added mounting foam to the back to raise it and attached it to another piece of card.  I recessed the heart fall away piece into the aperture.  I used the Double Stitched Squares and made a white frame to go around the background.  I cut the Hugs & Kisses sentiment in black and glued it inside the heart aperture.  Using some pixied card made with the same colours, I cut three flowers from the Heart Leaf Flower die set and assembled them and added them to the bottom edge of the frame.  I accented the flowers with some white leaves from the same set.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2"  x  7 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, this is such a beautiful creation, the colours you have used to make the background is pure genius, as you know I am not a messy crafter but I am going to try this one.

I was also so surprised to check the winners of this latest release only to find that I have one the Ric Rac Ribbon Background, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for this and look forward to having a play. email has gone off this morning.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Love the concept but sorry again as not sure on the colour especially as green is my favourite...(I must be a traditionalist when it comes to hearts lol), but I would change the colour so the idea is fab....
