Love Is All Around

Morning everyone, 
 I do hope you are keeping well. 
I’m still shattered after the weekend, 
but an extra coffee today will help. 

It is February already.
So we have a new Lavinia Challenge 
Our new theme is 

Love Is All Around 

Here is my inspiration 
I love to decorate MDF

I started with the beautiful MDF heart from Lavinia 
and drew around it on multifarious card. 
Cut it out.

Next some swiping with oxide pads 
As you know, I love this technique. 

Next some stamping 
Have you noticed the cork bench ?

I added some scenery,,,
I love the way the picture grows.

I used the distress college medium to stick the card to the Mdf heart,,,
It is a glue and a glaze
The brushes are perfect for the job too..

Some threads and a sentiment and my heart of love 
Is finished 

Remember you can win £40 to spend at Lavinia 
The winner of the challenge is chosen at random 

Enjoy the rest of your day 

Much love and hugs 
Jo xxx

Hi Jo, I love this so much and really want to have a go but could you just answer a couple of questions for me first please?

With the ink swiping, do you literally swipe the ink pad across your work or could I put some of the ink on a sponge and swipe it across my work?
Also, how did you make your cork bench? Was it literally a cork cut in half, coated with ink and stamped on or did you do it some other way? Thanks god your help xxx
