The lovely and very talented Di is running a competition over on Tando Creative at the moment. The prize is something a little bit special as it's completely unique and brings together the work of 11 papercrafters. Di invited us to decorate a piece each for a "Hugs & Kisses" game board. It's a larger version of the board available from Tando and having settled on a brown and cream colour scheme, we each decorated either a hug (heart) or a kiss (X) without seeing each other's work.
Everything is now finished and all together so I can show you my piece. I must confess to finding the shape a bit of a challenge but once I got going it came together fine!
I gessoed my piece and then sponged Antique Linen Distress ink over it before stamping a script stamp in Latte and the little key in Espresso. I did the same on the back of the piece, too.
The little tab is stamped with the sentiment and sponged a little. I tinted an acrylic nail teeny-tiny gem with a Copic so it matched the peach tone of the rose better and finished off with a key charm and a bit of gold acrylic paint around the cut edge of the piece.
