I am not a Valentine's Day person since the loss of my husband. Sort of the Scrooge of Valentine's Day ...bah heart bug! :) But the The Lost Coast Portal to Creativity monthly challenge starts TODAY and the theme is LOVERS. Ok I told myself I can work with that go all romantic and elegant! Then I remembered my new release stamp of the puppets Kukla and Ollie and it was over at the point! And they are new releases at Carmen's Veranda Stamps ! It became puppet love all the way!
Yes, puppets fall in love too spending all that time in a trunk together....hmmmm, think about it! So I took a strip of DT Valentine's paper and glued to the bottom intending to leave it as a pocket so the puppet sticks could go where I wanted them but forgot and just cut a slit with my kraft knife. My stamp was stamped on white paper and colored with Spectrum Noir Markers and a cardboad "stick" glued to the back, then stuck in and left unglued so they can be moved like actual puppets!
A die that I cannot remember the company that made it! was cut in red and some peel and stick letters spell out "My Love" with a very red feather at the end and a pewter heart in the middle. The little guy is holding a fake holly berry from a holiday spray but it looked just like a candy apple in his hand so he is is giving his sweet a sweet!
Don't forget to come play with us this month! And if you are anti-Valentines then think outside of the box and find you a pair of something that looks very much in love and create away! As always the The Lost Coast Portal to Creativity has all the info on events, challenges, designer's Reviews; the whole kit and kaboodle!
