When eye fall in love...




The Simon Says Stamp and Challenge theme this week is song titles. The theme at Crafty Boots Challenges is the same (spooky huh?!) and so I have been a good girl made a different project! Also, Linda's Grungy Monday project is a 'cracking' one; Hels wants to see some eyes for the Sunday Stamper this week and my lovely friend Siobhan wants some embellishments for her first Stamp Man challenge so this is my attempt at them all! Phew! I must be feeling better! Following your thoughts about my last song choice I thought I share our "first dance" song at our wedding... Nat King Cole's When I fall in love. Didn't he look young in that clip?!
Anyhoo - the crackle paint is the lovely Picket Fence with Vintage Photo and Black Soot Distress Ink rubbed into it. The heart is a combination of Fired Brick, Vintage Photo and Black Soot inks and some clear embossing powder in layers. The sentiment was printed from my computer though the 'love' is a bit of one of Wendy's stamps!
Signature
ps I know my project doesn't have an actual eye on it - I'm hoping Hels forgives me for the 'I' pun!

Gorgeous tag and such a wonderful song...I can hear it in my head now. The words tumbling across and the ornate plate over the edge of the tag are great touches.
