Love is in the air - Digitally Sweet challenge #70

This week challenge at Digitally Sweet I had the opportunity to use another gorgeous image from Lunagirl.

I got the inspiration for this creation when I was hunting for something in my craft room and I came across an old envelope. (I didn't find the thing I was originally searching for but...) Inside the envelope was a stack of old photograph negatives.... remember those? And I thought they might be nice to use with this image.

Here is my creation...

I started by making a background using some purple and black ink. I randomly rubbed the ink over smooth card to create a patchy textured background. 

I printed the image off several times at 13cm x 15cm and mounted one on to black card. 

I took two strips of the photograph negatives and sanded them heavily to create a old, scratchy effect. I took a length of grey thin ribbon and randomly weaved it through the holes in one of the negative borders.

I used my Visible Image 'ripped fishnet' stamp to stamp down one edge of the page and embossed it with silver embossing powder.
I added some white lace between the stamped and inked edge.

To put the card together, I arranged the images on top of each other and placed the one with the border on top. Then placed the negatives next to the image.

I stamped the 'love' stamp in a frame on to white card using silver ink and mounted it on to black card. 

To finish I added some cream padded fabric love hearts.

Another beautiful vintage image from Lunagirl.
