~Sweet Love~


I went a little crazy (OK, a lot crazy) with the wood flourishes on this one. But doesn't it look cool?! I love flourishes! And glitter and die~cuts and flowers..... Lol!
This is a very romantic image called "Sweet Love". I think the name says it all. I colored it with Prisma Pencils and chalks. It fits perfectly into a frame I found in a $1 bin a while back. I "stained" the frame by sponging some brown ink to darken it up a little. I also sponged blue ink onto the wood flourishes and then added Stickles Patina glitter over the top of that. I love that color, it's a green with just a hint of copper and silver mixed in. Heart shaped Spellbinders with Prima roses finished this framed piece off.
