T stands for Love

Hola Corazones,

Espero que estéis pasando un buen día, por aquí, con un tiempo casi primaveral, sobre los 20º C (68º F), un sol precioso sin nubes, sobre el maravilloso bullicio de la vida.

Hoy os traigo una tarjeta muy cariñosa, con corazones alegres,  con la que participo en el fabuloso reto propuesto por Linda para  Try it on Tuesday,  "New technique" (nueva técnica). Y mi nueva técnica consiste en coser con hilo un corazón de fieltro rojo sobre un corazón de cartulina amarilla.

Como mi tarjeta también tiene un poco de verde, he pensado que hubiera podido participar en el reto anterior al actual en Try it on Tuesday, propuesto por Elizabeth, "Go green/recycle", pero ya terminó el reto, qué pena!. la verdad es que los corazones hubiesen sido perfectos para el reto de febrero en Art Journal Journey, y propuesto también por Elizabeth, "Hearts", pero  también terminó, y además, luego me dí cuenta de que al ser una tarjeta, no podía participar en el reto. Bueno, participaré en el reto de este mes, que viene de la mano de Eileen, "Green", con una página de Art journal, que tengo en proceso.

Ahora me tomo un té, que  hacía tiempo no me tomaba, con Bleubeard & Elizabeth, y la fantástica pandilla del T-day.

Os invito a visitar los blogs de estas grandes artistas, porque están llenos de grandes obras de Arte.
--------------------------------------------------------------

I hope you are having a good day, here with an almost spring weather, over 20º C (68º F), a beautiful sun without clouds, over the wonderful bustle of life.

Today I bring you a very affectionate card, with happy hearts, with which I participate in the fabulous challenge proposed by Linda for Try it on Tuesday, "New technique". And my new technique is to sew with thread, a heart of red felt on a heart of yellow cardboard.

As my card also has a little of green, I thought I could have participated in the challenge at Try it on Tuesday, proposed by Elizabeth, "Go green/or recycle somethint", but the challenge is over, what a pity ! The truth is that the hearts would have been perfect for the February challenge in Art Journal Journey, also proposed by Elizabeth, "Hearts", but it´s over, and then I realized that being a card, I couldn´t participate in the challenge. Well, I shall participate in this month´s challenge, which comes from Eileen, "Green", with an Art journal page, which is in process.

Now I have tea, which I haven´t had for a long time, with Bleubeard & Elizabeth, and the fantastic T-day gang. happy T-day !

I invite you to visit all the wonderful blogs of these great Artists, because they are full of gorgeous  and incredible Art !

He creado esta tarjeta con una base de papel de acuarela con esmalte de uñas de colores (agua en un plato, añadir gotas de diferentes colores de esmalte de uñas, y posar el papel de acuarela, presionar un par de segundos y quitarlo rápidamente, antes de que se empape, luego dejar secar). luego he puesto varios lana  en varios colores de rosa, encima un corazón de fieltro cosiido sobre una cartulina amarilla, y he recortado también en forma de corazón. En el centro he pegado un corazón de goma eva con purpurina. Finalmente, he estampado sellos de flores y mariposas. Todo sobre una cartulina roja, y otra blanca.
-----------------------
I have created this card using  for the background watercolour paper with nail polish in different colours ( put water on a plate, add drops of different colours of nail polish, put the watercolour paper on, press  a couple of seconds, and quickly remove it and let dry). Then I put several bits of wool in various colours of pink,  on top a felt red heart, stitched on a yellow cardboard,  cut around the edges, In the center I have glued a little foamy heart with  glitter. Finally I´ve stamped flowers and butterflies.  Put all on red and white cardboards.

  4. Caty you have made a love,y piece of artwork, especially using nail polish! We love cafe con leche and miss it when we are away from home. I have tried the apple custard fruit but found it a very strange texture and taste but I know they are popular over here.
    Enjoy the rest of your week, Jan x

  5. Beautiful card, Caty. I like your new technique, too. I don't sew anything by hand, because I have no pinch grip to hold my needle. You did an excellent job. Love the glittery heart, too.

    I love how you shared your coffee, and was curious about the custard apple. It sounds wonderful and is making me hungry. Thanks for sharing your card and your coffee and custard apple with us for T this Tuesday, dear Caty.

  11. I know how disppointing it is to miss challenges, Caty. Been there; done that. For me, the time differences are challenge enough. I love your work and hope you can join us at Art Journal Journey with a green theme page before the end of March

    Happy T-day! Eileen xx

  14. Hi Cathy, that's a fabulous card, love the background. I've read about using nail polish in water but never tried it, so thanks for the inspiration.
    Your custard apple - two of my favourite ingredients, so must be delicious.
    Thanks for sharing this over at Try it on Tuesday.

  16. Beautiful flowers, Caty. Isn't it lovely at this time of the year, when Spring is bursting through the greyness?
    Love your nail varnish background - it's worked wonderfully. I've only ever tried that technique once, so maybe I need to try again if I haven't thrown away my varnishes!
    The hand stitching looks great... it's always a good way to add interest. I used to do 'staple-like' stitching between torn papers and loved it, but now i use a stamp instead, lol - not quite as good.
    Your page is bursting with life and with colour. The flowers are a perfect addition.
    Thank you for linking to Try it on Tuesday.
