An Expression of Love

Hello Everyone
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.lovelynnemoncrieffddThis 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.lovedetailoneHand-cut corrugated hearts painted with Gesso are the focals for each cardjetaimelynnemoncrieffwith lace, pearls and stained seam binding.  embracelynnemoncrieffThe 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.

    A gorgeous trio of cards Lynne and very shabby chic. The word stamp is very versatile and therefore worth the purchase.

    Sending you my best wishes

    What beautiful, romantic cards, Lynne. I love the corrugated heart and that word block is such a lovely background. I also really admire the subtle colour palette and the lacy textures you have used. I do hope all is well with you, Lynne. Take care. xx

    Hi my dear Lynne, just a quick message tonight to tell you that I really hope that you start to feel a bit better than the past weeks.. I send you millions of positives vibes and all my heartful greetings of a very quick recovery now, finger crossed strongly for you my friend. Your cards here are so delicate and beautiful… I love the little hearts and ribbon, also the wording like your simple ‘Je t’aime’ is perfect, so beautiful!!… Well, I will leave my home tomorrow morning to go to Version Scrap a few days, then my children will be on holidays for two weeks, so don’t worry if I disappear a bit again… but back to chat a bit and take some news as soon as possible and if you can answer of course. Gros bisous, Coco xxxx
