Valentine's Card

Here is the Valentine's card that I made for my husband.  I am rather late posting it and would like to enter it into the Clarity Stamp Challenge Love and Romance which ends shortly!


The background is made using Distress Inks and water then I popped it through my Grand Calibre using the Heart mask from That Special Touch.  Leaving the mask on, I inked through with Scattered Straw Distress Ink to pick out the hearts then added a punched out heart to each one.  The wonderful Clarity heart is stamped with black Versafine and embossed with clear powder and the background of the heart is coloured with toning Promarkers.  A bit of mat and layering - three little stones and there it is!

If you get the chance, please pop over to the Clarity Challenge Blog and see the gorgeous DT makes and other fabulous entries.  Thank you so much for visiting me, I so love to see you!  Take care and have a fab weekend.  Christine xx

What a fun card! I disagree though, love is nice and all, but sometimes you need a cookie too!
