Valentine Creations!

Back in the studio today to create some Valentine cards.  Here what I came up with- lots of red and pink! I will be entering both these creations into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge   for this week.

Love the look of the bottles- with distress rock candy crackle and distress stains. I used so many different techniques on this card. The grungeboard heart was  embossed with Distress Fired Brick Embossing powder, tinted the wings and the arrow idea-ology pieces with alcohol inks, and created the background by spritzing the Tim Holtz Hearts stencil with Picket Fence distress stain after creating a base of color (red and pink) by misting distress stain onto water color paper.

For the second card I used the Tim Holtz Valentine embossing folder to create a texture background of valentine words.  Using the blueprint stamp LOVE and watercoloring with distress markers I created the main focal image.  The XO was covered with Festive Berries distress glitter for a little sine and layered over some hearts ribbon.

Hope everyone has a fantastic Valentine's Day! More snow to come here so I definitely will be spending more time in the studio!
