Patchwork Valentine


As soon as I saw this lovely heart from Artistic Outpost's Cutie Pie plate, I thought "patchwork."  After creating the patchwork from assorted papers and cutting my nine hearts out, I placed it on sturdy chipboard which I had painted with pink acrylic paint and then outlined in a gold-embossed lace border from AO as well.   It's just the kind of pink-and-lace type Valentine I love!

Speaking of Artistic Outpost, I am happy to share with you that I will be acting as a guest designer for them.  I have loved their stamps since they put out their first set so it should be a lot of fun.  And some of their current designers are ladies you'll recognize as regulars from the Tag Tuesday challenge.
