These both fit into the theme over at Simon Says Stamp and Show. I am bound and determined to either win a gift certificate, or nudge my way onto their design team over there so I can get more crafty supplies! The theme this week is a "red letter day," so these little signs fit the bill since Valentines Day was my inspiration.
These were very simple to create. I used several of Tim Holtz's dies to get my shapes. Most of the coloring was done with distress stains, have I told you how much I love these...amazing! I did add a bit of wire, stickels, rub and buff and a few eyelets to give the project the mixed media feel I was after.
I extended the above project off the chipboard base by adding eyelets and attaching a piece of grunge board with jump rings. It also adds movement to the piece, and I love movement in my work.
Hopefully this post inspires you to use some of those die cuts you have laying around!
