Love Hearts

Hello and thank you for your visit.

This is a card I made a while ago  using a piece of acrylic paper which I covered with Crayola Slick Stix in a few hot colours then blended  with fingers and an almost dry babywipe.

I dry brushed on some white gesso then when dry stamped with some script and a few stars in black before distressing the edge.

The large hearts were stamped and embossed using one of Leonie Pujol's stamps then fussy cut.  I added some red pen to the edges then some glossy accents.

the little hearts are punched from a scrap and the Happy Anniversary stamp is by Hobby Art and I put some glossy accents over that too.

I would like to join in with the following challenges:

Crafty Calendar Challenge - February (Love is in the Air)

Well dear friend, Your card is fantastic for a lovely Anniversary Card, I had a wonderful comment already to go and then leave it to me to erase it or something. UGH.. any ways just wanted to say thank you for searching for me out in blogland. For some reason (me) I"m always having technical difficulties with my blog.. So I really appreciate and love my friends that come to find me. Just a simple stamper as myself. Thanks a million.

This sounds like an interesting technique to try, and it certainly created such a lovely textured background too. Dry brushing the gesso was a brilliant touch as well. Love the twin hearts and you've got one pretty unique Valentine card too! Congratulations on your win at Rachels. Hope you saw that you were a winner in the Mystery Candy! TFS & Hugs
