Banner of Love

Hello and welcome! It's time already for a new theme at Allsorts challenge and Mervi is hosting this week. For her optional theme she selected "Hearts" and we would love to see your creations including at least one heart but as always there is the anything goes option and all your handmade creations are welcome for a chance to be entered into the prize drawing or to be selected for the Top 5. We have prizes from  AALL and Create and Lavinia, they will be for challenges 767 and 768 and winners will be announced on the last Friday of February. 

Here is what I made and I includes lots of hearts :)

The cute image is Penny Black's Banner of Love. It's an oldie but  new to me. I purchased the stamp last year along with several other Margaret Sherry designs for Penny Black as I am still collecting those wood mounted stamps. This is my first time using this one :)

The die cut trees were cut with Penny Black die Beneach the Birches. Lightly inked them with Spun Sugar Distress ink.  Then on the bottom I used Penny Black die Love Always. The image has been colored with Copic markers. It had been so long since I used my copics, I accidentally used the wrong ink pad so I had to be careful when coloring as it can smear and did smear right around his cheek but I added some white dots with a white Sakura gel pen in that area so it's not as visible anymore. 

I used a cloud and grass stencil both by MFT and Spun Sugar Distress ink for a pink scene. Hard to see but I stamped xoxoxo on the top left and bottom right, then the sentiment from the PB set Furry Affection which didn't end up centered between the trees so I added some tiny die cut hearts ont the right side of the sentiment.

You have until Friday to join us wether you add a heart or not we'd love to see your creations!
