Airbrushing fun

Hello Peeps.

I'm thrilled to announce that I have been selected as a member of the new Lili of the Valley Design Collective, so you may sense a bit of a theme in my next few blog posts :D

The MDF hearts I ordered from Joanna Sheen arrived yesterday so I thought I'd make a little wedding keepsake with some LOTV papers and stamps.



First I covered both sides of the heart with one of the papers in the 'Antebellum' paper pad
(poke the holes through on the first side before doing the second)

I wanted to add a little resin flower but the colour didn't match at all.

I tried colouring direct with my graph-it markers but couldn't get into the crevices 
(also it looked horrible and patchy)

So I spent a very entertaining ten minutes huffing and puffing over the chisel end of some red and purple markers to try and 'airbrush' it.
It blew off the table several times before I had the sense to glue it to my craft mat!

I stamped a couple of the LOTV Sentiment Tags onto white paper and cut them out, 
then threaded some white organza ribbon through the holes

It's finished off with a white die-cut branch (from Marianne I think)

That's all for today, I'll be back soon with my first Design Team submission. 
Yay, can't wait !!
