Omgosh, so July is huge for Stampotique so I wanted to make something a bit more special for our big month. Not only are we having a massive release, we have new DT members! It is So huge! Guys, I am so sad to see some of my team mates go, but thankful to get to stick around and excited to get to design with new talent. <3

For my project, I chose to use one of our new images with a few of our older images. When I saw "Floating", I knew he had to be partnered with "Smile". Like brothers. SO sweet!! I also decided to try something I have never done before and make a mixed media banner with fabric scraps and paper. Oh, and a stick from my yard and some scrap lace.

This was SO fun to make and I really cannot wait to create another! It was so easy and so fun and kind of....I dunno, its just neat. I am thinking this may hang on our door for Valentine's Day next year! I think the sentiment goes well too and it is good for any time. I used my zig zag stitch to attach it to the banner. 
 And srsly, look at these lil guys!!! How sweet are they together! It was like they were meant to be! And the wings on the heart is kind of awesome, if I do say so myself! I colored the images lightly with Copics, but just enough to make them come to life. I didn't want to over-do it.

So, onto the next person, Sternenglanz I hope you have a blast with this blog hop!! Happy hopping!
