Sunday Postcard Art challenge, but never quite got around to it. When I saw the theme for this week though, I knew I had to do it! In my last post I mentioned how much I love the images at Twisted Papers. I downloaded this adorable little girl with her kitty last week and have been dying to use it. I am also submitting this for today's Mixed Media Monday. We are big cat lovers in my family. That kinda counts as romance, right? ;-)
My first layer is made of felt that has been stiffened with fabric stiffener and run through the Cuttlebug. I wish this hadn't ended up being so hidden - it looks really cool! The pink layer is done using the Faux Felt technique from the Feb/March '09 issue of the Technique Junkies newsletter. I've stamped it with a background stamp from the new Bonbon collection from Oxford Impressions. The word Valentine (also from OI) is stamped on a vintage paper scrap and covered in melted beeswax to give it strength.
