And Finally... a Bit of Love... or was it just the wine?

This one has a gesso resist and distress ink background.  The heart is cut from a book page and I've used ink and gesso to colour it, using sequin waste as a stencil.  I've added the swirls on the heart using white gel pen and have stitched around the edges of the ATC and the heart.  The word "Passion" is rubber stamped and the rest of the words are found poetry taken from a page of "David Copperfield"

Love this! Love the sentiment - very amusing - love the way you've expressed it in the heart with some spilling out of the edge. Lovely work!

seriously good! I love that colour combination....is it a lime green background? (looks like it on my lappie screen)...it works really well with the pink. Not a colour choice many would attempt but goes to show you can make it work! I like the double layering of the words too..the stamped script on the heart and then overlayed with the cut out saying...again some might think this would look too much but you've got the balance just right.
