BE MINE !


HI & SHALOM EVERYONE !
לטקסט בעברית נא לגלול למטה
The blogosphere is still buzzing with LOVE !
Looking again thru my mother's box , i've found
another vintage postcard.
I loved the scene in it . the gentleman as if he's
begging  the lady " be mine ", 
" you're always in my heart ".
( me and my romantic soul -LOL :O))  ).



i've cut a heart twice from a felt with the cuttlebug, 
stitched it around and filled it with some acrylic fiber. 
The arrow is made of beads threaded on a wire ,
and i learned this technique from my friend IRIT.



Underneath i put a tule folded in half and gathered 
into a circle .Between the heart and the tule i added 
a pink ribbon tied to a bow.



The postcard was scanned and printed to the desired 
size. I've added white felt underneath the postcard
and machine stitched it all around.
the background paper was also stitched to the card.
To finish i added metal letters to form the popular 
word  LOVE .
this card fits those challenges :

C.R.A.F.T - # 36 "Valentines or Love ".
The treehouse - #035 colors of Love 
" Red, Pink & White".

THANK YOU for stopping by and visiting my stage !

היי בנות ! 
הבלוגוספירה עדיין רוחשת בנושא האהבה.
חיפוש נוסף בקופסת הזכרונות של אמי העלתה גלוית וינטאג'
נוספת. אהבתי את הסצינה שבגלויה.
הגבר כביכול אומר לגברת :" תהיי שלי", "את תמיד בלבי".
( אני והנפש הרומנטית שלי :O)) ....).
בעזרת הקאטלבאג חתכתי שני לבבות מלבד ורוד,תפרתי ביד מסביב ומלאתי באקרילן.
החץ עשוי מחרוזים שהשחלתי על חוט מתכת.
את הטכניקה הזאת למדתי מחברתי עירית (ניצנץ).
מתחת ללב הנחתי טול שקפלתי לחצי ואספתי לעיגול דו שכבתי.
בין הטול והלב הוספתי סרט ורוד שנקשר לפפיון.
את הגלויה המקורית סרקתי והדפסתי לגודל הרצוי,
הוספתי לבד לבן מתחת לגלויה וחיברתי ע"י תפר במכונה.
דף הרקע חובר לבסיס הכרטיס גם כן ע"י תפר במכונה.
לסיום הוספתי אותיות מתכת שיצרו את המילה LOVE .
הכרטיס עומד בדרישות של כל האתגרים שציינתי למעלה.

תודה שקפצתן להציץ מאחורי הקלעים שלי.
יהיה נחמד אם תשאירו "עקבות" :O))  !!

                                             מימי.

אני ממש מתלהבת מהסגנון הוינטאג'י שמתפתח אצלך לאחרונה.
איזה עושר של מרקמים.
פשוט נפלא

הצילום לעומת זאת זוועתי.
בבקשה לצלם באור יום מלא ולהחליף את התמונה הזאת
