it's that ole devil called love again ...

'... gets behind me and keeps giving me the shove again,
putting rain in my eyes, tears in my dreams,
and rocks in my heart.


when he sings that sorry song, i'm just gonna tag along,
with that ole devil called love.'

The sketch: StampARTic. The challenge here is also 'cheap crafting'. I may have a few embellishments but I didn't buy anything new for this, I just used stuff from my stash :-)

Other challenges:

'Something beginning with 'b': One Stop Craft Challenge. I have used brads and blossoms.

'Favourite colour combo': Everybody-Art-Challenge. Mine is definitely red, white and black ... at the moment, although it is a colour combo I have loved all my life. Red is a colour that I have really struggled to colour with, but I keep practising with it because I love the dramatic effect it gives and I can't let a little thing like not being able to do something, beat me.

'Stamp with another use': Magnolia Down Under Challenge. I have used a halloween stamp for valentine's (couldn't you just guess?).

My finished piece was originally 8" x 8" but I placed it onto a piece of red 12 x 12 bazzil to photograph it. I've now decided that I like the big red border so much that I am going to incorporate the bigger card. Just wanted to explain a) why it doesn't look square and b) why you can see the layer sticking up at the bottom.


Papers: Making Memories ~ Wedding. The heart shape has stickles around the edges.

Clock: Heidi Swapp stamp which I embossed and added stickles to the edges.

Lace (at top of heart): dabbed with silver paint and stickles added.

Flowers: sprayed with Glimmer Mist ~ Old Lace. If you only buy one colour of glimmer mist (as it is quite pricey), I would recommend you buy this one as it is so versatile.

Red glitter brads.

Images: Magnolia ~ Devil Tilda from the 'So Spooky' collection and the heart from the new collection. Both have been coloured with copics and stickles added. I layered the heart and added a 'Love' rub-on to the middle.

Thank you for looking.

I am sorry, but to be in the running for the prize at StampARTic, you can not combine the entry with other challenges.
But thank you for posting your card, so we got to admire it anyway!
