Love Me Do! for The Artistic Stamper

Great to see all those "Vintage" lovelies created for last months challenge :)
So..... February brings us
for the monthly challenge over at The Artistic Stamper Creative Team ;)

This little thought popped in my brain as soon as I saw the theme!
Well It's about time something popped in my brain...
...bit lacking on the creative front round here just lately!

Anyways, I went with an ATC and already had the faux wood effect background made using Distress Ink pine needles and peeled paint and decided to stamp the man from Men's plate 1 onto white card and colour the background to blend in 'cos that looks a bit like wood too

(I know wood is not really green but you get my drift!? LOL)

I cut an extra little square piece of white card to cover the words as I wanted to change it up a bit and stuck it down and coloured it with a little Distress Ink worn lipstick and attached a shrunk plastic heart from Stitchels curly dot plate that had been coloured with a copic marker.

The lady from Twenties 1 plate was stamped with Adirondack wild plum pigment ink in wild plum onto piece of paper that had been coloured with Archival chrome yellow then cut out.

The word LOVE from journaling words was stamped in Archival black and the heart in Distress aged mahogany before handwriting the words onto a spare piece of chrome yellow coloured card.

You really must take a look at the "Heart" creations the rest of the team have made and here are the DT member links for you.

So don't forget.............the monthly challenge is "Hearts"
The rules are simple... all you need to do is make a piece of art, be it a card, ATC, wall art, altered art, scrapling ;)... just remember that it must include some rubber stamping and the theme... and... if you use Artistic Stamper stamps on your entry you will be entered into the draw twice! The prize is £15 worth of stamps from the Artistic Stamper shop... along with the KlingOn to mount them onto.
I hope you get chance to play at the challenge... it is open until February 29th

(ooh! that means it's a leap year....perhaps I should pop the question to RA!!!! ROFL)

and the winner will be chosen by shortly after :)

Thanks for looking and happy stamping
xoxo Sioux
