BF February inchies

Having spent ages on my moos for the BF forum swap - scroll down to see them - I needed to get on with my inchies, the theme for which is 'love and romance', so the theme was quite similar to the moo swap (well, I suppose it would be as February has Valentine's day in it).

I decided to get the shrink plastic out and have a play - I had to experiment at first to get the starting size right to achieve inchies. Having done this, I stamped each one with a section of the La Blanche foam music stamp using memento tuxedo black and then stamped Dawn Bibby's heart stamp using fired brick DI. I was aiming to create 'If music be the food of love, play on'.

I'm linking these for these challenges:

There she goes 95: stamp simply - only lined art
The lollipop ladies 14: hearts
Stamp man 16: hearts theme
Stamp magic 30: hearts
Let's ink it up 9: romance
Stamp and create: love
Crafty calendar 17: love
Scrappy frogs: love is in the air
Pear tree 37: one colour
Crafty Ann 35: love is all around
Dezinaworld: teeny tiny
Let's craft and create 13: anything but a card
Stamp insanity 47: the ABCs of an ABC - anything but a card
Rubber cafe 5: no patterned paper
Frosted designs fabulous Friday: no patterned paper
City crafter 45: nothing to it - simple one dimensional
