Love is.............

Hello again, another Sunday has rolled around, which means it's time for a new challenge over at the One Stitch At A Time Challenge Blog. Our sponsor this week, who is offering a gift voucher to their on-line store is........

The theme of this weeks challenge is 'New Beginnings', that could be New Home, New Baby, New Love/Engagement/Wedding, or even just using your vast amount of 'New Stash' get the picture?

So, onto my DT project for this week, here's at least one guy who is gearing up for Valentines' Day..........'Lil' Cupid'.............

Fairly vintage this week. I worked with an image from Floppy Latte Designs called, as previously mentioned, Lil' Cupid, and you can find him over at the Stitchy Bear Stamps Store. He was coloured, as per usual with a combination of Prisma pencils and Copic markers, and there is quite a scattering of ultra fine glitter on there too. The sentiment is another digi I picked up a while ago through the Free Digital Stamps blog, and was created by Raindrop Echo Designs. I'm not sure which song John Lennon included these words in, but I thought how lovely they were, and would fit perfectly with what I was intending here.

I should have maybe mentioned, that the 'New Beginning' I had in mind was probably an Engagement. The papers I've used are from Basic Grey's Cappella line, together with plenty of ink and distressing. I had this idea of Cupid delivering an ancient message of love, so that's where the 'scroll' idea comes in. I added various bits of bling, ribbon and flowers and used foam dots in places, to get the dimension I wanted.

I'm not too pleased with the photo I've used here, as the light picked up the transparent bling swirl sticker, which in real life is pretty sheer. Oh well, it was too late to take another, so you'll just have to take my word for how good it looks really! (lol)

Well, that's it from me, so go visit the OSAAT blog and check out the other DT creations. I'll be entering this into a few challenges I'm sure, so I'll be back later with the deets.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
