Stuck on U Sketches Blog Hop and Something Tattered Valentine!!

Hello! Welcome to a cross promo blog hop from Stuck on U Sketches
Our hop goes from February 14-16,midnight to midnight.

If you came here from
Laura Gilhuly at AngelScraps, you're on the right track!
If not,head back to Stuck on U Sketches to see the sketch and start hopping!

We've all created layouts based off our February 14th sketch
and the Scraps of Darkness teams have created theirs with the awesome kits from their shop!

I also used my Something Tattered stamps with the SOUS sketch to create this vintage style Valentine:

I started with an off white canvas and stamped the background using Quick Quotes ink in "Bloody Mary" and the "April" Something Tattered stamp. On the hand-stitched muslin heart itself I used the "Nest Amour" stamp.

I loaded it up with Prima and flowers,ribbons and lace from my thrift store stash. I finished it with some pearl rope and painted the edges in Ivory acrylic paint. I love the vintage look!
Our sketches can be used for more than just traditional scrapping-think off the page!

Here are the stamp sets I used:

As you know Scraps of Darkness is our sponsor for this month's
