QKD New Release!!!!! Because "Love Never Goes Out of Style"

Hello Everyone and Welcome to another FANTASTIC Royal Tuesday NEW RELEASE HOP!!!
This week I am privileged to show you the Feburary WIS Kit "Love Never Goes Out of Style"!! You MUST hurry and grab one as last month's WIS kit FLEW out of the store and once they're gone....they're gone!!
However, first off, if you came here from the WIS blog then you are on the right track!! If not please start here so that you don't miss one amazing creation from my fellow team members!!

There are ENDLESS possiblities with this month's kit!!! I wanted to do a framed piece to give to my daughter for Valentine's Day. I had a frame in my stash that has a bit of a Mother of Pearl look to it. Perfect for an "Under The Sea" creation!!
I created my background first with a 5x7 piece of white PTI cardstock. The next layer is a piece of chocolate brown textured cardstock from a SU! Simply Scrappin' kit. I adhered these together and used one of my many decorative stitches with chocolate brown thread as a border.

I then decided on what do use for my circles. I chose the LOVE heart from the WIS kit and stamped it 3 times on white, light pink and dark pink cardstock. I inked it in Brilliance Rocket Red ink and heat set it with embossing powder. I then used my SU! 1 3/4" punch to pop them out. I lightly distressed the edges and used my silver paint pen to color in the tip of the arrows.
I then set to work coloring the Love Never Goes Out Of Style and her lovey little octopus friend! She is inked in Brilliance Coffee Bean craft ink and heat set. I used my Copics and sparkly Sakura gel pens to color them in. I matted my image on a scrap of DP that I had from a mat stack.

I altered my sketch a tiny bit due to the size and shape of my image. Considering I am putting this into a frame I wanted everything to be relatively flat in order to be able to fit properly behind the glass. Therefore, I made a flat satin bow in chocolate brown with white polka dots.
I then cut a strip of sparkly cardstock from the same mat stack as my bottom layer in which to place my heart shaped brads. I added a *little* extra rhinestone bling as my daughter LOVES anything sparkly.

I adhered everything down - using my regular adhesive runner for most and pop dots for my circles. I love Valentine's Day for lots of reasons but mostly for the colors, the images and the adorableness of everything that comes out at this time of year!! (especially the CANDY!! heheh)

I do hope you've enjoyed and been inspired by my creation today!!

Now - off you go to Anita's Blog to see the beautiful creation that she has for you today!!!
