I have this post scheduled to appear in April so yes, Valentine’s Day is well and truly over and done with for another year but I decided anyway that I would share this trio of cards which feature the Darkroom Door Word Block Love.
There isn’t much to say about each card which were simply made with two of them featuring the stamp as a background, stamped onto book text painted with a mix of Gesso and Fresco Vintage Lace then for each card I selected a particular word/sentiment.This Word Block might be labelled Love, but as you can see, there is such a great variety of words/sentiments on this Word Block which can be used beyond cards for romance such as:- Live, Laugh, Love or Happiness, what about Elegance or the one I particularly like which is Moments.Hand-cut corrugated hearts painted with Gesso are the focals for each cardwith lace, pearls and stained seam binding. The cards came about after I made a card in a similar style to send to my sister and brother-in-law for their anniversary last year. I then continued to make the ones above with Valentine’s Day 2015 in my mind, submitting them to Stampington’s Take Ten, (with them actually appearing in The Stampers’ Sampler). I have to pinch myself whenever a submission makes it to the pages of any of their publications.
