Love Is In The Air

Yep it's that time of year again, the shops are full of Valentine's cards, and lurve is in the air (not so much in Yorkshire where the cries of 'how much!!' can be heard around the card shops and florists lol) Anyway the theme at Stampotique this week is to put a heart in you art, and here's mine.

I turned to my trusty PanPastels for the background, in pinks, purples and the gorgeous metallics. 

Lots of stencilling and stamping, I love how the golds and coppers shine through.
I've used
Hanging Hearts
Daniels Hearts
Text Block 3
Flying Heart

Out came the stamp positioner for a bit of double stamping with Heart Vine

My new Altered Alpha stamps LOVE 'em.
and finally Roc's Stacked Love.
Many hours had now passed since I started on this, I just kept coming back and colouring in a bit more lol, but that's a sign that I was having fun :-) 
I'm entering this into the PanPastel challenge which is 'Use a Stencil'
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Love Notes
SSS Wednesday Challenge Have a Heart, and Kate's monthly journal challenge.
Hope you like it, and thanks very much for looking xx
