Arrow to Amore

Trying something a bit different from my usual girlie style today for Retro Cafe ARt. It's a tag that is something a bit more graphic. Of course, it's still about love but in a modern way. I've been trying to decorate our new home using  a different creative eye too. I'm using all things that I own but in new ways. In a couple of weeks, I will start showing you here on my blog.

I started with a tag that I dabbed turq, red, mustard and pink paint on and also used punchella for a stencil. I layered a painted Valentine Wood Cutout "Amore" that was painted with turq, pink and cream. The Cupid Cutouts is painted turq with a red Stickle heart and white dimensional pearl on the wings. The tag also has a curved arrow and asterisk sticker that were painted, dotted and stickled. Some shiny red heart stickers with dimensional pearl dots add shiny. The final touches were red German Dresden Fancy Border scalloped scrap trim and a bright red bow.

Hope you will find amore this week.
love always, gerri
