Love Challenge 8

This weeks challenge is Lurve.:) So the theme is Love/Valentines..anyway you interpet the Lurve thing...:)
You do not have to use a Faith image. If you use a Faith image then your name gets entered twice in the draw. :)

This is the prize on offer.....lots of pearlescent sentiments and a nice big length of Lilac satin ribbon...always good to have in your stash..:)

Here is some fabulous inspiration from the talented DT members...and also a real treat - Tina has made a special project and has done a tutorial for you to enjoy:) :)

By Tina:- Tina has used the Faith Hearts on her Fat Page and has made a Brooch on it too - what a great idea a card and gift:)

Here's Tina's tutorial for her wonderful fat page..:)

I used the Love the heart stamps from the Faith stamps.
There are three hearts with beautiful detail on them. I love these hearts,
I have used them to make butterflies and flowers.

And by stamping onto pink card I made a flower
and on pink felt I made a brooch!

Now I am told this 4 by 4 piece is a fat page.

I made the pink hearts into a flower
using silicon glue to raise it up.
Green ribbon makes the leaves.
A button and silver thread
makes the centre.

I started with a pink felt.
Stamped the heart four times in a flower shape.

I cut the whole flower out in one piece,
used pink thread & tiny pink metallic beads
to edge the hearts.

I then used one strand of
silver embroidery thread to stick the
criss cross inside the heart.

A button was sew on the centre with
the same silver thread, leaving long tails.
I added more tails by repeating this step
a couple of times.
I added two small heart shaped charms
with the same thread.

The next layer is pink netting material.
which i hacked into a flower type shape.
I sewed it on folding as I went
to give more shape.
I pulled threads around the edges.
I cut the leaf shape out
in one piece of green felt
This also hides all the messy stitching
on the pink netting.

A fastener is stitched onto the back
and I placed this on the card after
making two small holes with my crop o dile.

By Debbie:- I have used Faith on Windowseat....

Sorry about the three deleted comments yesterday, I couldn't get my link to work - talk about more haste less speed! It's too late now, but my card is on my blog :o)
