L'amour




Not blogged for so long, just haven't had the time since coming back from holidays.  Managed some time today and made this self standing collage........... how satisfying that I have crafted after nearly 3 weeks !!

I had previously made the background from recycled corrugated card which I had given a crackle finish with a gold base coat. The general colourway was purple, red and gold as you can see.  The piece measures 6 x 5.5 inches and the background technique is described in this blogpost.






I then used a Tim Holtz background stamp of distressed dots stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with violet pearlescent embossing powder.  A polymer stamp of a tag was stamped in similar fashion but this time heat embossed with mirror gold EP.  I then stamped a couple of flourishes in red Versamagic ink.

I used a lot of elements cut from 6 x 6 - 7gypsies papers (Camden & Lille).  All elements were edged in black archival ink to give them definition.






The Eiffel tower frame was made from a black card arch frame ( Stewart Gill) backed with paper from  the Lille papers and embellished with amber flatbacked gems adhered with Glossy Accents.  The letters were applied as rub-ons (Making Memories)






The remainder of the elements were stuck in place as shown.  The floral plate was stuck in place with a foam dot and pierced through with a heart-headed hatpin ( burying the sharp end in the corrugated background).

Some purple deco balls were added as shown with Glossy Accents.






The piece was then matted onto a piece of the Lille papers (they are double sided)  and the fold down stand (sizzix die cut out of cardboard) applied with glue to finish.

I like the colours of this piece and of course the bling too !
