XO XO Wall Hanging in celebration of Valentine's Day

Today I am sharing another project for our January cross promotional with the Robin's Nest. The new Valentine themed products from Gina's Designs have made working with this paper so much fun.  The new designs are available in the store just in time for your February projects.  It was hard to decide which one to use, but here you see the XO XO Wall Hanging which includes the chipboard backing, the heart shaped frame, and the XO XO letters.  To begin, I backed the piece with striped paper from The Robin's Nest, and covered the letters with their glittered red paper.  I painted the heart frame in baby pink, and used some extra high foam mounting squares to pop it up from the back to create a shadowbox effect.  I embellished with some vintage Valentine images from my stash (which were also given dimension with pop dots), followed by flowers, bling, and other things, and of course our awesome chipboard cupid, part of  the new Cupid Shape Set.

The cupid was covered lightly with white gesso, followed by a coat of white chalk ink , then stamped in red with a script stamp, and finally by inking the edges lightly in red.
