Hearts

Now that Valentine's day is just around the corner there's a lot of challenges going on in blog land  focusing on hearts. I took my inspiration for this card from Linda Coughlin on The Funkie Junkie blog. I sprayed a piece of white cardstock with Poison Red Dylusions ink ,dried with heat tool then applied Gold dabber paint to my TH flourish stamp and stamped randomly . I stamped Love definition from Tim Holtz's Love Struck set in black Archival ink and sponged the edges with pumice stone DI. The To My Valentine was stamped with Gold dabber paint on black c/s fussy cut and layered on gold paper then fussy cut again.I sprinkled some gold/white Frantage and embossed with heat tool. The gold heart is a Cherry Lynn Design die cut from gold paper. I added a red glitter heart to the center .I curled the corners slightly and distressed the edges before attaching it to the card base . I wanted some contrast so I stamped a script background in Pumice stone DI and then stamped LOVE in Fired Brick DI randomly . The gold heart was hung with ribbon and added a Love charm .


I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Love it, Marilyn! Isn't that red just yummy? It just warms up a cold winter day and makes a fantastic Valentine. Tim's Love Struck set is an old favorite of mine and it's so great to see it being used! Thanks so much for playing along with our Winter challenge over at Frilly and Funkie!

Hugs,
Linda

Saw this card today "in real life". The spray ink on the background is a lovely shade of red and the gold scroll stamping is much brighter and shinier than in the pic.

Really like this Valentine!
Sharon

Wow! Looks like a LOT of work went into this beauty! Hope you didn't get the Dylusions on yourself (like I always do), it's so hard to get off.
Hope you are enjoying this lovely Winter!
