OWOT week 7!

Bit late posting this as it was from last weekend, but trying to get caught up...

February Technique - Stamping
This Week's Word - Love

I don't do a lot of stamping, although I do own quite a few stamps as I do love them! But I wouldn't normally stamp on a layout, so I thought I would take this approach for this weeks prompt. I decided to take a slightly different path for the 'love ' prompt and rather than a page about the people I love I decided to do one on my love of ITALY!!

Here's a photo taken as I was putting the page together. I used a heart stamp to create a background on the blue card stock, a small alphabet stamp set to create the title, a foam heart stamp to make the smaller hearts.

I used an Amy Tangerine paper for the background, some bakers twine from My Minds Eye, Crate Paper Farmhouse paper, a very old Imaginisce paper and some pink and brown ink and an Elles Studio date tag! I added the word happiness stamped with brown ink using an old Heidi Swapp library stamp around the journalling.

Here's a close up of the stamping.

So, hope you join us in using your stamps this week and if you make something lovely, please link us up!

Happy creating!

Thanks Tracy. Italy is SO beautiful! We have been lucky enough to have friends living there, so the prefect excuse to visit! Sadly they are back in the UK now, but we will definitely go back. x
