GC41: Pinning my hope on Love!

Well wouldn't you know it, 2 altered pieces in the same week, looks like i found my AA mojo again.
Partly due to the new challenge over at Gingersnap Creations
This week its a Chestnut Challenge and the Theme is Romance
I decided to altered a domino
Jennie over @ The Artistic Stamper has just realised some fab new love stamps just in time for valentines so i snapped up a set and got stamping.
Firstly i used the word Love from the Roses are Red plate.
I then masked it and coloured the domino with alcohol inks
Leaving the mask still in place i stamped over the whole thing with the poem stamp, again from the roses are red plate.
I peeled off the mask and voila.
I had pre made a hole in the domino which i threaded some wire through and attached a mini lock and key charm to, and then to finish i added a backer turning it into a brooch.
Jennie @ The Artistic Stamper are sponsoring the challenges this month over at Gingersnaps so there is chances to win the stamps i've used, go check it out for more details
And dont forget to check out all the other fab artwork by the very talented team :)

Hi Nicky! I just saw your comment in my blog and I'm here to answer: the font name is "segoe print" and I modified from the font code, in a part where says " body font" I wrote the font name. Hope this could help you ^^
