Instructions: This LO is, 30.5 cm x 30.5 cm. The photo is, 7.8 cm x 7.8 cm.
All the stamping is done with the gold embossing powder unless stated. Find the design paper in the paper collection.

Take a swirl mask and a thick gesso type, apply to the edges of the paper. (If you cannot find a thick white gesso, you could use a white medium paste for the same job.) Put aside to air dry.

Taking the Valentine mask, apply the gesso to the Ox’s and HUG part of the mask to the right lower side of the base LO paper. Once dry, taking the distress ink, ink the edges and corners, also applying the ink gently over the gesso to give it color. Do the same with the matting papers. (The papers are the smaller print of the 30 cm x 30 cm print) Cut a piece of the red card stock for the background matting.

For the sentiment cut from the Eggshell white card stock 9.7 cm x 3.4 cm. Stamp the sentiment. Distress and ink all the edges of the papers and card stock. Stamp and cut the boarders, leaves and Roses. Cut the bow x 4.

After adhering the bow together, add a spot of glue, then fold it back on itself so you get a double half bow.

Cut the ovals out, distress ink the edges and bring color where wanted. Stamp the dress on the hanger. Cut at the waist. Color with the ink. (see the photo above with the sentiment for placement)Place and adhere the papers and matting to the center left of the page.

Add the layers of die cut ovals, using 3d foam tape/dots and cardboard to give height. Add the photo using a cardboard layer to give the photo support and height.

Place and adhere the boarders to the ovals and sides of the matting papers. Place and adhere the sentiment, boarder and dress on the hanger.

Add the flower and leaf clusters to all three points of the LO. Tucking the half bows behind the roses to fill the cluster. To finish, add stickles to put sparkle and little bling to your work. Add also a touch of gesso on the roses to blend in and soften the red. When applying the gesso, dip your finger into the gesso and dab, adding more as needed.
TIP: Ink can be added to the gesso to give it colour...another option for another day.

Now...this was fun. i loved getting all inked and gessoed up this week. These dies are such fun to make the layers that stacking!
Wishing you a scrappy week and inky hugs
