I 'Love' This Die!!!

Hi Everyone  :)
 I'm back with another project that's on the Tattered Lace Blog, using the fabulous Monumental Moments - Love die. 
Whilst this die enables you to make some stunning cards - equally it lends itself to the class of home decor.
Today I am sharing with you a stand up piece that is sturdy & simple to make x
You will need to cut 8 'Love' words in a sturdy card-stock...I've used 300gsm. Glue and layer each die cut...remembering to trim the tab top of the 'O' into an oval on each layer as you go.

Coat the entire piece with Gesso, including all the edges, and leave to dry.

Whilst that is drying cover a plain mdf plaque with some designer paper, then run Walnut Stain Distress Ink around the edges.

Take the Love wording and spritz it with some watered down acrylic paint.

I have then used a crackle stamp & some gilding flake to decorate both the wording and the base, and run Distress ink in both Walnut Stain and Worn Lipstick around the edge.

Stamp a verse/sentiment of your choice onto the base and then, with a hot glue gun, adhere the wording to the mdf base, holding it steady while the glue sets.

Cut 2 butterflies in matching papers, ink and gild random areas and adhere to the 'O' ...cut a few sets of the Floral Flourish & Lacy Rose dies...ink and adhere those also.
That's it...you're done!! :)
