Be My Valentine! xoxo

Well I'm back again, perseverance is supposed to pay off and I am determined to improve with crafting skills! Getting into the Valentines mood today after having a lovely Indian takeaway last night. Hubby said I had a choice - meal at a restaurant OR takeaway and £20 craft contest! I must be going for my record with the number of challenges I want to enter this week too, it seems like love is definately in the air with all the love themed challenges! Here are the ones I was interested in: Bunny Zoe - Love is in the air
Cupcake - Something Red
A spoonful of Sugar - Show some love
Papertake - Hearts
Truly Scrumptious - Sketch
Stamp Man - Hearts
One Stop Challenge - Love
Totally Gorjuss - Love
Stampin for the Weekend - Valentines

Originally I masked the window behind Tilda but then for some reason decided to give some perspective and did Tilda again separately to bring her up on dimensionals. Used flower soft for the flowers, never used it before but my mum gave me some to play with and was pleased with the result. Gave Tilda some red bows for her bunches using embroidery silks and paperpieced her dress.
I also used: Usual Distress and SU inks
Magnolia Romantic window and Be my Valentine Tilda
Magnolia Red roses
Rose buds (given to me by my friend Fleur x)
SU lacey punch and sentiment

Thanks as always for stopping by, your comments make my day! x
Love Nicola xxx
