Lake Love

Time for another challenge over at

Challenge 56
Love Actually

Welcome back to the IKEsWORLD challenges :)  do pop on over to IKEsWORLD to join in the challenge, it is always so much fun and  Ike produces the most amazing stamps, everything from off the wall to cute and fluffy :) :) :)

For this weeks theme of Love Actually I have used a new Ike's image called Lake Love, what a truly beautiful image, one which contains so many of the things I relate to when I think of LOVE - a quiet moment with my best friend and hubby when our two souls become one, river water which draws me into a truly calm state, I can sit by a river for ages just watching nature passing by, and woodland, oooo the smell of the woodland tickle all of my senses - yep this image shouted love to me big time.

Keeping the nature feel of the card I used hessian (burlap) to cover the card blank and also to mat the image, it smell wonderful lol.

  • image - Lake Love by IKEsART
  • colouring medium - Promarkers, Polychromos and Pan Pastels
  • dies - Sizzix Love, Birds and Hearts set
  • from my stash - cold line stickers, gold peel off sentiment, gold pen
I am entering this project into the following challenges:-


  1. I love the use of burlap and the little pops of teal. This image screams love to me, too.
