Happy Valentine's Day!

Hi everyone,

Happy Valentine's Day! I wish you all a wonderful day filled with love! From my best friend, Lein, I always get a beautiful card with Valentine. Sweet huh? This card I made ​​for her. She is crazy about the color red, deep red and that's perfect for this day! I'm entering this card with Frilly and Funkie, where the challenge Heartsy Lacy Valentine's Project. My heart is not really lacy, but I do have used lace and it's a valentine project...So I guess it fits the bill.


I used for the background the same technique as for the February tag from the 12 tags of 2013. Very cool technique, and to give the red some more definition I used different shades of red Distress Inks. Then I worked in some some stencils with the darker shades of red.  (The colors in the picture don't match a bit. There it's all orangy red, but it's actually deep red and you don't see all the different shades. So I'm making new pictures tomorrow, hope they'll be better. With daylight the colors are a bit more realistic, but still not deep as the reel thing unfortunately) To give it a little touch of black I randomly stamped with the Music Sheet stamp, made some splatters with Dylusion Spray and painted the edges black. The red tulle I got from my bestie and fit nicely with this card. I made it a little bit darker by spraying with Black Marble, so it does not fade away into the background.
The text stamps and hearts are exclusive stamps from Simon Says Stamp!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!
