i love you

I used the lovely Marianne Design die Petra's Bridge to frame Don and Daisy.

 I layered the heart paper on to pink card stock for the background and also cut a MD small rose corner out of the same card. I cut the words i and you out of the same card and punched a red heart embellished with a pink heart gem. I cut a scalloped heart out of floral paper and inked the edges. I added some MD die cut leaves and punched flowers and 3 pink hearts top right.

be happy

I'm a big admirer of Gabrielle Pollacco. She does some lovely mixed media canvasses and I have tried to emulate this in a card. I also recently obtained some Gelatos which I are very hard to find in the UK, and have used these to colour my background and chipboard pieces.

I made the background by covering a piece of card with 7 Gypsies Paris tissue paper and coloured with the Gelatos.
I cut all my die pieces out of chipboard and painted them with a metallic paint before adding hints of the Gelatos. The Marianne Design dies I used were LR 0116, LR0143, LR0156 and LR0157 plus I cut out some cogs and a memory box Lunette butterfly. I also cut out the letters be to add to my sentiment.
The image is set in a miniature picure frame. I added a bow made from seam binding and organza ribbon. The sentiment was attached with a memo pin. I cut some feathers from glove leather. To finish I added some gems, a piece of lace coloured with the Gelatos  and a printed butterfly.
