Decorate to Celebrate DT Challenge #92: Love Heart Wall Decoration


It's time for a new challenge at Decorate to Celebrate
It's Anything Goes - create decorations for anything you please (3-D projects, cards in a box, and cards with any 3-D cut out on it). 

I made this wall decoration with my Cricut:

Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge from CTMH (heart, banners and rose)
stamps (CTMH)
patterned papers (KI Memories, The Paper Studio)
hemp string
mini clothespins
paper flowers (Recollection)
Brilliance ink pad

I cut the same heart shape (almost 11 inches) out of white cardstock and pink patterned paper. The white heart was altered in CCR. I also cut out 4 flags in black and a spiral in cream, which I rolled into a rose.
Don't know if you can see it in the pics, but I weaved hemp around the open spaces, and also used hemp for hanging the banner and the heart.
I spelled "LOVE" (using stamps and a pearlescent ink pad) on the flags and added them with clothespins. I like using Brilliance ink pads on black gives you the chalkboard look with a little bit of shimmer.
I finished it up with two cut out butterflies and layered flowers with the rose.

Thank you for stopping by!
And don't forget to link your projects HERE!
