Kiss Me, Why Don’t You!

It has been quite a busy week on my Blog so many thanks for taking the trouble to visit. As Valentine Day is fast approaching I am trying to post various pieces of artwork which relate to that day. Today I would like to share a hanging I made using French Kissed Postcards’ Art Deco Lovers. The colours are amazing in this digital image.
If you were using this image for either a Valentine or Anniversary card you could have such fun creating captions.
A layer of violet sheer fabric represents the fluidity of her dress. The piece of postcard (peeking out from behind the image of the couple) is a vintage French postcard, the cologne label is also vintage. Both were scanned before printing onto white cardstock. To embellish I added Prima flowers, fabric ribbon stickers and dyed a length of lace with spray ink (doesn’t it remind you of lace that would trim an underslip).
All stamps are from Oxford Impressions.
I will return with another French Kissed Postcards project on Friday. Lynne x

    Gorgeous hanging, I love this image and especially the dress. That coat hanger is fabulous. Do you ‘recycle’ it or have you a secret stash? xx
