I Love You by Mandy

Happy Hello Friends!
Today it's my turn to share my project and featuring this month's beautiful inspiration "February Love Mood Board Challenge" hosted by Dana.
 My take on this month's challenge was to create a page full of "love", hearts and Valentine's Day inspired (since I was posting the day before)..... The CAT File Store generously provided fun and beautiful images to the design team members this month and thank you!  I don't have an electronic die cut machine so I printed off the images from the computer and cut out the hearts and the word "hug".....

I painted some of the cut out hearts red.....I was going for a red, black, white color combination.....I did not add "one" flower to this project....When I saw the images from the CAT File Store I was inspired to create a fun, artsy, whimsical boy page with a touch of grunge...
 I cut out the image of my son and then I outlined the image with red card stock....I wanted the photo image to "pop"....I figured a "red" outline would enhance the photo details.....I added a "digital" heart to the left of his shirt (his right)....using PicMonkey...I added the little "i" bottle cap....A perfect fit inside the heart....
I used paint to stencil and stamp the background work because the paper is velvety and I figured ink might not show up as well....The white and red splats are paint also....
I hope you'll find the time to join our challenge this month! Check out the fabulous prizes donated by our generous sponsors:
First Prize: $15 Gift Voucher to the CAT File Store

Second Prize: Art Workshop Kit Club - Pocket Life Kit
