The look of love

This one is for my parents :)
Isn’t this such a cute picture? It’s my mom & dad before they went out to an art show earlier this year.

The Layout is for
Twisted Sketches
and the twist this week was RED

This one is also for
The Shabby Tea Room
Their request was for embossing
The velum flower on my page was embossed with Cuttlebug “Persia” embossing folder.

Here's a little tutorial on how to make the emboss heart flowers:

Cut out four big hearts (2 1/2)and four little hearts (1 1/2) out of velum. Then emboss and ink them.

Cut the bottom of your hearts making a slit at the tip

Place tape on one side of the slit and overlap the two tips. Gently shape the top of the hearts back.

Layer the hearts over each other moving clockwise starting with the four big hearts and then going to the smaller hearts. Add a center and there you have a flower made of hearts :)
