Tando February Challenge!

Hi...are you feeling the lurve???? For this months Challenge over at the Tando Creative Blog we want you to all to be PASSIONATE!!!!!  I thought long and heard about this one hahaha!  I could have done a scrapbook layout but I knew at least one other would do that.  As hubby and I don't 'do' cards that was out of the question too.  Then my eyes landed on a JOFY stamp that I love so Lovebirds it was haha!!!!  Like a lot of birds, they mate for life.






I used the Tando Triple Arch Layered Frame as a base.  There are lots of layers in the kit but I had already used most of them plus the backing on another project.  No problem...I just used a stiff card to make another backing, covered it with patterned paper and stamped on it...








When the frame was painted I glued it to the background and then cut out.  The birds were stamped, embossed and coloured with copic pens. The branches come from one of my favourite packs - Mini Birds and Branches and painted with Fresco paint.  The big heart is from a grab bag and has been painted then embossed in blue with the same background stamp Kaisercraft) as before with a smaller painted heart attached.  Then it was just a case of glueing it all together...tada!

Here is the nekkidness as it comes to you...












Thank you for popping by today, take care out there and remember to be passionate :-D . HUGS xxx
