Spreading The Love

Just for a change I didn't reach for a canvas or card for this make but instead some old material, just plain white. I began by painting the material with some gesso to enable me to get a crisper stamped image. I then painted with red paint, and stamped Moon Girl's Crow, Hug Enclosed and Spray using black Archival ink. The felt heart was die cut and stitched on with silver thread and the hanging loop was made by stamping Dotted Line again with black Archival ink.
My lovely friend and fellow team mate, Carol,  is setting the challenge theme of 'Spread The Love' this week at Stampotique, check out the blog for details and how you could win $30/ £18 approx to spend at Stampotique!
I know we're spreading the love but I'd rather cupid keeps away from me for a while! 
Wishing you a love filled day, Sam xxx
