Love is in the air!
Today's is the launch of a new challenge at Hobbycutz and this weeks theme is LOVE or Valentines. I have been hoarding this beautiful lasercut from Hobbycutz especially for valentines day ( same as I believe a certain Donna Pato is! lol)
This is my Inspiration for you all for the challenge using a range of Hobbycutz wooden lasercuts. Now as all my regular followers know I love die cutting however there are some times when paper cuts just wont do what you want and that's where I find the wooden lasercuts perfect. For this card I used the word love and was able to gild it, using indigoblu Sheffield steel (well I am from Sheffield originally) and sanded it back a little to let the natural wood colour show through.
Next I added a few ting leaves in piles which is great with these as they have depth..

back to todays card I started by die cutting and embossing the red heart in red PMD Card-stock which i shaded using a white chalk ink-pad. I mounted this onto a white layer hand cut and foam mounted onto the backing card.
The leaves were glued on to the side and over the bow with a few red gems and the lasercut LOVE on top.
