I HEART U!!!!!!!!

I really hope you're not getting tired of RED!! (if so, adjust your monitor or squint for a minute!) The background paper is made from the "I", heart and "U" images in my "Little Tees" set. Instead of cutting out the shirt this time, I made a mask to cover the collar of my stamped shirt, and then stamped the hanger over it.

To make the paper I lined all three images up together on the block, then removed the heart so I knew I'd have enough space to add it back in. That allowed me to ink up both the I and U together each time and stamp them across the paper diagonally, offsetting each row. Then I went back in with just my heart inked up in Real Red. Before finishing the card, I added some Christmas Red Stickles to some of the hearstthe heart and filled in a few (but not all )of the "U"s with my red marker. I was just thrilled with the way it turned out!
I also added one heart to the corner of the card and more Stickles. I really like this layout, I didn't want the scallops covered the custom DP I slaved over for 3 whole minutes (LOL!) and I think it's interesting not to see them all the way around, peekaboo! Like with the short sleeved shirt, the circle Nesties frame this long sleeved tee really well, too.


Have a great weekend, thanks for peeking in, I HEART U! Check back for my long, long tee tip sheet!!! (I admit I'm kind of putting of posting it because I keep adding more to it LOL (Cathy's suit? hel-lo!!!)
