A Snazzy Challenge

Hay there friends
Today see's the launch of the brand new
Snazzy's Challenge
The theme is Love/Romance
And 1 lucky person will win an awesome Prize pack containing some of the goodies the DT have been playing with this month.
Here is what I created:
We had a very cool Darkroom Door word block stamp to work with.
I Started with a plain canvas base, I cut a piece of acetate packaging to the same size as the canvas.
Next I alcohol inked with 'red pepper' & 'pink sherbet' on one side of the acetate, I then stamped the word block on the other in black stazon.
I diecut a sizzix heart and stamped it with the same word block but this time in 'angel pink' memento ink, I 
used a 'pink carmine' pitt pen to add some edging to the lettering. I lined up the heart to the background and stuck down. I attached the acetate to the canvas using some fancy brads just pushed into the canvas wood edges.
I diecut 5 Tim Holtz pine cone shapes in a pink colour card, and rolled them into the roses which I topped the canvas with using a hot glue gun.
To finish and make it stand I attached a mini canvas to each side with a tack, I then covered the back of each mini canvas with some paper I had inked and stamped to match in with the main canvas.
The Darkroom Door stamp amongst other things can be ordered from Snazzy's, Just give them a call..
There is a online store in the pipelines hopefully to go live some time in feb.
So... Get your love groove on and get making.. Then get over to the Snazzy's DT blog to share what you've made.
Cant wait to see your entries
Stay Inky

These are so pretty and fun. What a great job you did on all of them.

Went thru your last few posts and GIRL YOU ROCK ON THE TAGS.

Also had to drool over the collage page from Donna's idea again, it makes me happy just seeing it.

So glad I found your blog and inspiration.

This is a great idea Nicky. Love that alcohol ink background. I haven't done one of those in an age and I do enjoy making them - there are so many combinations. That fabulous heart is the perfect size to use with the wordblock stamp. Fabulous work once again. I don't know about you but I can't wait to go visiting visitor entries!
