Forevermore

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! Hope you all had a great day with your loved ones. I got to spend the day with my husband, driving from Indiana back home to Mississippi, with a little antiquing thrown in for fun. Not a bad way to spend the day!

This little canvas was one of my projects for Tim's CHA Idea-ology release - love all of these different elements! The first thing I did was cover the edges of my canvas with the new Commute Tissue Tape. I added a bit of Pitch Black paint using an Adirondack Dabber. I covered the center portion with a piece of luggage print paper from the new Destinations Paper Stash. In the center of that, I added a panel that was cut from Kraft Core'dinations using the Sizzix Vintage Cabinet Card die, and then embossed with the new Subway Texture Fade, also from Sizzix. I sanded the raised portion with my Idea-ology Sanding Grip.

Finding out the Plaquette fits the oval Faucet Handle was a very happy accident! From the faucet, I hung a heart cut from cardboard using the Love Struck die from Sizzix. I glued Idea-ology Eye Hooks into the crevice and hung the heart with copper wire. I added a couple of the new Mini Gears for a masculine touch (this is for my hubby!).

After I cut the heart, I painted it with a Red Pepper Adirondack Paint Dabber and then sanded lightly when it was dry. Next, I stamped the sentiment from Stampers Anonymous' Stuff to Say collection with black pigment ink and embossed with Ranger's black embossing powder.

Finally, I added a sticker from the new Chitchat Sticker Book and covered it with one of the new Label Pulls. Fun! I love all the new findings and papers and can't wait until everyone can buy them!
