Letters to Juliet

TIO #104 - Letters to Juliet

The theme, in the series of film titles, is set this week by my fellow design team buddy, AJ. She has chosen for her film "Letters to Juliet". A lovely romantic choice. Plenty of inspiration in the title, don't you think?

I decided to use a plate of stamps from Rubber Stamp Concept entitled "Venezia" (a lovely set), plus a lady from Sirius Hobby and script from Stamp Camp.

I decided to use my new winter distress inks on this one, so the colours are Iced Spruce, Evergreen Bough and Festive Berries, plus old paper and spun sugar. I have also used vintage sepia archival, on the small tag, and stazon cotton white on the black tag.

I inked the main tag with iced spruce with evergreen bough anf festive berries around the edges. I stamped the script on the main tag using iced spruce then stamped over it in evergreen bough with the balcony and gondola.

I inked the small tag with spun sugar then around the edges with festive berries. Then I stamped the lady using vintage sepia. I attached the scroll, a TH pen nib and a vellum rose (made with a spellbinders spiral blossom one die and festive berries ink).

I made a little vellum scroll, inking it with old paper and stamping on it with vintage sepia, then tied it up with narriw red ribbon.

Lastly, I attached the three tags together with the same narrow red ribbon as used around the vellum scroll.

And I think that is it!

We had a terrific response to last weeks' TIO challenge. You all seemed to love steampunk. So hows about a bit of romance this week for a complete change? How does that grab you? 

We hope you will pop over to the TIO blog for a bit more inspiration then that you decide to join us with your version of "Letters to Juliet". Please join in, have fun and remember to use at least one real stamp in your creations.

Now I had better get back to the kitchen. Jacket potatoes are in the oven but  I still need to prepare steak, onions, mushrooms and vegetables!

Please feel free to leave a comment (about my creation, not the steak, etc). I love to read all your comments and I will try and get to all your blogs and check out your work.

Bye for now.
