xX Happy Day of Love Xx

Just a quick post from me as I'll be spending a loved up day with my sweetie pie
But wanted to share the little gift I made him
 This is also my entry for this weeks Pan Pastel Challenge as they have a 'Love & Romance' theme
 I diecut a heart from card and coated it with phthalo green pan pastel, I then added a strip of dictionary paper and coated that too. I gave some grungboard wings a permanent red pp coat. Stamped a loving phrase and attached a couple of eyelets and copper wire.
Then I used some of the very cool crafty notions rusting powder from paper artsy {I am now an official member of the RustyArtyTarts} on a wood frame I have had for a while, left it over night to work it's magic, and in the morning I put a bit more text paper on the inside of the frame, gave it a smidge of rusty hinge ink all over and attached a little hook for my heart to hang from.
I just hope he likes it.. It's all very well being a crafter but sometimes trying to think up new and fun things for your other halves isn't always easy.
Right i'm off, catch ya again soon and I wish you a very Happy Valentine's Day x
Stay Inky
♥ HUGZ ♥

Wow! I don't know what all of those neat things are that you work with, but you sure know how to create a beautiful piece with your medium!!! I really love the grommets and wire and the texture on the wings.
