Swirls and Pearls

Good morning,

I hope you all had a good weekend, it's been freezing here - I even had to turn my heating on for a while yesterday!

It's time for our next challenge over at Make My Monday and this week we have a classic theme, chosen by one of our retired design team members. We would love to see your projects showcasing the theme


Now I don't know about you, but I had so many ideas for this one I didn't know where to start - I think I put pearls on nearly everything I made, so I just had to incorporate the swirls! Here's what I made for my DT inspiration ...

I decided to keep it simple and use the theme as the main focal point, rather than an accent. I stamped the heart first, masked it and then stamped the swirls in archival ink behind it. I coloured the heart with my Denim Promarker to match the backing layer, then added loads of little blue pearls.  The sentiment was printed on my pc, but I did think afterwards that this would make a lovely engagement/wedding card.

If you have a minute to spare, please pop over and check out the  challenge blog where my teamies have some more inspiration for you.  I shall look forward to visiting your blogs during the week to check out your 'Swirly Pearly' creations.

Hugz, Jan xx
