Remember to love YOU

Hi ya, over at That Craft Place Challenge Blog our challenge for this next week is Anything Goes, we are also having a DT call.  It's a fantastic design team to be with, I have been with them for over two years now, I am part time at the moment and do their posts for them and the odd challenge but I would never want to leave as they are brilliant and so much fun, we have a DT facebook and we are always in contact regarding our lives.  Lisa the owner also has a bricks and mortar shop and a facebook shop that she offers a pigeon hole pay at the end of the month system, this means you can order bits, pop it in the pigeon hole and pay when you get paid :-)
I would like to enter the following challenges -
Artful Times Challenge Blog - Anything Goes
Crazy 4 Challenges - Be Sentimental - Remember to Love You
I Love Promarkers Challenge - One for the Girls
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Anything Goes

The main image is actually a Digi stamp from Ditzie Digi Designs,
which is part of That Craft Place.  I don't tend to work
with digis, but I am pleased with the outcome.
I printed the image onto Letraset manga paper, it's really thin so when
I cut it out and placed it on my canvas you couldn't really see
where the lines were.  I painted the canvas with Frescos, I made
some stencils with heart punches and used paint through some areas
and grunge paste on other areas.  When the grunge paste
was dry I painted them red then stamped with versamark and
gold embossing powder.  The image was coloured with promarkers, I
shaded around the image and hearts with a chalk pencil.
The main heart was made by using a heart stencil with 
grunge paste and then had micro beads on top.
I used black around the edges with treasure gold and also
used bits of gold embossing powder around the canvas.
I embossed on black card the sentiment that I actually made up,
it was something I need to say to myself :-)
All details of products are at the bottom of the page.

Right I better be off, hope you have a wonderful Sunday, I might be back with a Paperartsy make, but don't think I will get it finished in time :-(.
Happy Crafting :-)
Hugs Kezzy xxxxx

This is so vivid a red and I love it!
I too am not into Digi images but I just love this and how you have used it (Think I am trying to remain a purist to rubber stamps although I do use the clear ones LOL).
What a stunning canvas you have produced and I bet it looks even better in real life with all the texture etc.
Thanks for sharing with us at Artful Times - Hugs, Neet xx
