Love is still around!

I know Valentine's Day has now passed us by, but I couldn't resist creating this card. You know when you think about crafting in your sleep? Well this is one such creation.


To create this card I used the materials below.


First I painted the thick card with acrylic paint and used the ink spray to add the red colour.  The purple spots were created with a stencil. Using various WOW! Embossing stamps I ramdomly stamped over the background in black ink. I used a white pencil to highlight the string of hearts. Finally I stamoed the flower image onto the card and then again onto plain card so I could decoupage the image.

I think all good ideas come to you when you are sleeping!!

Challenges I am entering:
Rhedds Creative Challenge - Anything (Mixed Media)
Unruly Art Quest - Heartfelt
