MFP Stamps Challenge - CAS with a Hearts Theme!

 
 
We are doing CAS with a Hearts theme at the MFP Stamps Challenge blog.
 
For my CAS card I used the MFP Stamp Shop Love Remains stamp set.  I created a stencil using a heart die and then used distressed ink to lay down the color.  The image and sentiment were stamped using Memento Black ink and the image colored using Copic Markers.
 
We hope you'll share your CAS (clean and simple) heart themed cards with us this week.  You can find the challenge HERE.

Altered Eclectics February Challenge

 
The Altered Eclectics Challenges are always anything goes as long as it is Mixed Media, Recycled, Upcycled, or Altered items.
 
For my February project I altered a tablespoon!  My wonderful husband used a rubber mallet to pound the bowl of the spoon as flat as he could get it!  I then used Ranger Alcohol inks to give the dull silver spoon some color.  I embellished the spoon with a string of adhesive pearls on the handle, some paper flowers, a multi-looped bow, a metal Prima flower and a butterfly.  (This project was very difficult to get a good, clear photograph.)
 
We hope to see your altered projects this month!  You can enter the challenge HERE.

Eclectic Ellapu Pink Team February Challenge - Love Actually!

For my card, I created a watercolor wash background and layered that panel onto coral cardstock panel.  Die cut Spellbinders heart, the sentiment is Paper Smooches die cut.  I embellished using some adhesive pearls.
 
We hope you'll share your Love themed projects with us this month.  You can find the challenge HERE.

Let's get started !!

 
I used the MFP Stamp Shop Island Life for the image and sentiment.  I colored the image using Copic Markers.  I used the paper tearing technique then sponged distress ink around the torn edges.  The image panel was adhered to a rectangle of burlap and embellished using a small knotted piece of rope.
