It's my turn to reveal my Lollipop Ladies DT submission for Challenge 47. I've gone with a different take on my normal style by being a bit more arty. I really loved this photo of my husband and I taken during our pre-wedding shoot, we actually have an 8 x10 print of this up in our bedroom. I went looking for shadow/reflection quotes and fell in love with the one I used on this LO. I really do think the love I share with Ben helps give vibrancy to the rest of my life.

It's a bit hard to see in this photo, but I have actually masked the heart shapes and covered the rest of the cardstock in texture paste. The black doily is left over from when I used it as a mask on my Wedding Selfie LO, I found it on my desk and thought it would work perfectly. :)

Here is the inspiration picture:
I was inspired to use this photo because of the reflections. I've painted the hearts in similar colours to the jelly babies. I initially wasn't too keen on that colour selection but it actually looks pretty striking and it's good to use a colour palette I wouldn't normally choose. The added challenge was to use ribbon and I've got a couple of ribbon flowers in there.

There is still another 5 days to enter this fortnight's competition, so what are you waiting for?

UnstampaBelles also has a challenge to use ribbons, so I'll enter this LO in there too. It's an interesting new challenge blog I've found where you're not allowed to use any stamps in your entries. I thought this would be perfect for me since even though I have a heap of stamps I don't seem to use them that often. :)
