Love Letters

Love is in the air for this Valentine's Day. I thought this project was appropriate for the occasion. I ordered a February kit form The Flying Unicorn Store that came with lots of beautiful items and this wonderful wooden letter set. 

I used the browns and light blue papers from the kit because those colors go well in my living room. I plan to place a photo behind the "O" frame to display. I began by using a few of my own supplies most of which can be found in my online Artfire Store, Moore Art From The Heart....  Prima Art Ingredients Micro Beads in Copper, Distress ink Vintage Photo, Distress embossing powder in Vintage Photo , Distress embossing powder in faded jeans, and Ranger Emboss it Dabber.

After tracing around the letters on to the papers, cutting them out, distressing them and then inking the edges this gave me a base to work with. 
Now using my Emboss it dabber and distress powders I gave it some texture and color. 
I love adding the copper Micro beads to any project. They always add that little something to catch your eye. 

I plan to add a photo in the "O" and realized I had a frame that fit so nicely in the there. The frame was silver so I added a small amount of  Rub N' Buff in blue and gold to match the rest.
The kit came with this beautiful laser cut chipboard which I inked and embossed. Don't you just love the way the blue peeks through? 

The little white metal  Heart Gear  is also something I carry in my store. 
Here's a look at the back. I am going to place this on a shelf where the back does not show.
Hope this project gave you a little inspiration. If so please leave a comment and subscribe to this blog. I choose all my random prize winner from my subbies. Good luck and Happy Valentines Day to all.
