Alpha/Dictionary Challenge - F


Hi everyone - I have decided to enter the Alpha/Dictionary Challenge over at The Craft Barn. The letter is F but with a twist to use a heart.
I picked the word face.
I inked through my new stencil with various distress inks. Stamped the image using burgundy ink & coloured with my pencils. Cut out the dictionary definition of face & inked around with more distress inks.
Arranged the elements onto my inked background, then die cut the heart shape. Die cut a larger heart from some black card, embossed & sanded to show the embossing off a little better.
Hope you like it.

I have entered this in:
