I Love U--PP377

January 21, 2018

It's time for another challenge at The Paper Players!

Our lovely and multi talented Joanne is our hostess this week.  She wants us to create Clean and Simple Love Notes.  We can't wait to see your projects!  

I created this background with alcohol inks!  I loved the way it turned out.  I know there isn't a lot of white space, but it is clean and simple to me.  I used gold glitter paper to cut out the i and u using the retired Verve dies I heart u.  The heart is cut using the Cherry Lynn Two of Hearts dies.  That is all there is too it-- No stamping or embellishments.
