Are you ready for a challenge? A Silhouette Challenge that is! That's right, it's 2015 and it's back. Another year of creative challenges that my blogging buddies and I are excited to share with you. This month's challenge -- Print and Cut with a bonus challenge to include Hearts. Yes and Yes!
27 bloggers have joined this month's challenge. That's 27 ideas and inspiration just for YOU! You can find a clickable link to the other projects below, but first let me share with you my darlin' little dancer.
When I saw what this month's challenge was, I knew I wanted to participate. You see, I purchased from the Silhouette store this adorable little dancer file over the Christmas holiday when files were on sale and I couldn't wait to use her.
Now it was time to work on the print and cut portion of the project. Even though this isn't necessarily a Valentine craft, I was inspired by the season of love so I decided to make my "print" a song. I chose Save the Last Dance for Me by The Drifters (what?!? I have an old soul!)
Let's get cutting now! Since 'hearts' were the bonus challenge this month, it goes without saying that my song would be cut into a heart. Pretty, right?
I decided a solid red heart would make a great backing for my print and cut heart. I made it slightly larger than the first.
My little ballerina. There is something just so sweet about her. Print and cut time.
I used white acrylic paint on the canvas, then used Mod Podge to adhere the pieces to the board and used it as a seal on top. Patience has never been my best virtue but I left it alone for over an hour while it dried.
I used adhesive squares to adhere the printed heart.
Added the word 'dance' using vinyl and VOILA, Dance Love! Cute as a button and I couldn't love it more!
