NEWEST 'GIFT AWAY'

 
 O.K....through much trial and tribulation,
here is the latest of my 'Gift Aways'. 
The laptop I usually use (IBM) is on the fritz...
Windows will not open, therefore NOTHING will. 

So I have to depend on my mac that does not have picasa 
and uploading and sizing of photos is a bit harder. 
This picture is not the best I fear, 
but I wanted to get it here as best I could. 
This is a 4" balsa wood heart with a hanging loop 
of black and white 1/8 ribbon trim. 

It is also edged around the entire heart with the same trim. The image is a Zetti (one of my favs) image stamped on tissue and slightly colored. 
The text is also a stamped bit of paper. 
The heart itself first had gesso applied, 
a few different paints and inks to give it depth 
which you cannot see very well here. 
The back is a lighter color of paints and I will be signing and writing a little note to the winner.

I have not spritzed on the glitter glam yet 
as that impairs the photo quality, 
but it will be applied shortly as I think that will be the little "bling" necessary. 
All and all it's a little Valentine morsel from me to you. 
This week I will draw the name on Thursday 
so that it can be mailed off Friday.

I want to make sure it's gets to it's new home before Valentine's Day.

Bonne Chance!!

Well, Miss Rella =^..^=

Again ... delightful.
The backgrounds on your pieces captivate my attention ... I love them.

Stamped on tissue paper?
Ingenious. I really should try some of these
lovely techniques I read about! I like this one.
I can see potential for great fun ... and a big
mess in my studio.

Such fun. The bigger the mess ...

Your heART today is big and as beautiful
as always ... A lovely offering indeed!

Alas, although I DO love this gorgeous piece
I do not wish to be considered for the draw this
time ... as I have just been bestowed
with the amazing gift of winning Miss Katra the
Paper Doll (of which my head is still spinning with happiness.)

But LOVE this one! Hearts are a favorite!

=^..^= xxoox zU

I feel guilty jumping into another drawing of yours...but how could I resist ???? This heart is WONDERFUL....I want to reach out and touch it. I know with the tissue paper that there just has to be a yummy feel to it !!!
And I love zetti, too. Actually anything Teesha(ish) is the best...it just has such a great "make me smile" look to it !!!
