My local stamp group is having a Valentine swap - we are each decorating a paper mache letter V for another member. This is the one I did for Karen. I painted the letter first with red acrylic paint, then adhered patterned paper, lace and ribbon, a painted and "stickled" chipboard heart, and a vintage image glued to a heart playing card (from the Target $1 Spot). The dark red heart paper on the lower portion is actually tissue paper that the V was wrapped in and given to us by the hosting member. I couldn't resist using it on the project.
