I spent yesterday making a romantic present for my hubby and I am going to share it with you as I want to enter it in the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. This weeks theme is Messy! Well I think I could have entered anything that I have ever made into this one as I always make a mess and always end up creating in that last postage stamp of space left on my desk. If I paint or ink I get it everywhere but somehow it all seems to turn out right in the end. I hope Ivan likes this - I know it is a bit romantic looking but I have been making him little heart love tokens for quite a few years now and I thought I would give him somewhere to hang them up!! And I made him a new heart to add to his collection. I am so happy he is my Valentine and has been for 30 years!!!! Ooooo can I really be old enough ;-)
I decorated a clipboard to match a Valentine tag I made last year (too late for Valentines so I have been keeping it safe!)
I used some hitch posts that I have been saving as I they were out of production for a while and I am so glad that Tim announced they were back as I find them so useful. Hanging from one is the cute little love token I was talking about.
I have used the same image transfer technique on my tag and on my clip board. I love doing this even if it is messy messy messy!
Lots of lovely romantic embellishing going on - I am not sure Ivan will be showing this to the lads!!!
I decided to show you just how messy I am and I have posted a video fast forward of how I made a Valentine for my Valentine.
One confession to make before I post this and link to Simon Says Stamp and Show.......I haven't tidied up yet!!!! That won't surprise my Valentine at all ;-)
Have a lovely day and thank you for popping by x
