Sunday Stamper Challenge Week 100

Over on Hels' blog it is another Sunday Stamper challenge but this is a special one as it is week 100, what an achievement.  If you would like to see more of the Sunday Challenges pop over to Hels' blog here

With this being a special for the Sunday Stamper challenge I thought I would make something a little more detailed, hence it has taken me a lot longer to complete. 

Products I have used include: Maya Road Coaster Chipboard Book (Hearts); Maya Road Chipboard Birds of a Feather; Distress Inks Victorian Velvet and Tumbled Glass; Claudine Hellmuth Traditional Tan paint; StazOn Ink Timber Brown; PaperArtsy Stamps HP1004EZ and HP1005EZ the Hot Pics Series; Tim Holtz Alterations Dies (Heart Wings); Tim Holtz Idea-ology Charms; Ultra Thick Embossing Crystals "Arctic Lake" and Stewart Gill paints Amourosa and Silver.

I began by painting all the hearts with tan paint and allowing to dry. Once dry, I applied Victorian Velvet and Tumbled Glass ink to the hearts.  I then used Tim Holtz Heart Wings die and grungepaper, I have used the actual die and the aperture that is left as a stencil.  With the stencil I have added a heart to each one of the heart chipboard shapes using Stewart Gill paints.

Each page has also had a file tab added with the sentiments, LOVE, JOY, LAUGH AND HAPPY.

I have then simply either stamped or added embellishments to each page.

Once each page was completed I attached them all together with the chain provided, along with Tim Holtz charms (a bird and heart).

Now completed I think I will give this to a friend for their birthday.

Hope you like, happy crafting, Tracy xx
