Hi Ya, and Good Morning. We have sunshine, the temps are warming up, one scheduled 'fixit' tech has showed up as promised, and we are waiting on another one. I finished a card last night, so here we go:
- Mulberry Wood image (Sweet Love), stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Xpress paper, colored with copics, spica pens & Wink of Stella. The image is adhered with dimensional foam onto the border panel.
- My Favorite Things Die-namics circle die that has the piercing in the die. Love it! I'm trying to find the oval set. Smudged Victorian Velvet & Pickled Raspberry while still in the die.
- Dylusions Background: Cherry Pie, Postbox Red sprays that were diluted with white linen. Teal and Fresh Lime diluted with water. Perfect Pearls copper lightly spritzed after the Dylusions layer had dried. (This was a background I had done earlier, and thought it looked nice with the image. ??).
- Border is matted with black rectangle that opens & has some punched heart shapes that were embossed with a Darice hearts EF, then used Versamark & added some Sparkle n Sprinkles white detail to one heart, peppermint stick to the other heart. A Valentine verse will be added to the card insert. Heart paper is a a snippet from Basic Gray 6x6 Kneehigh. Black matting was also a snippet.
The January 2014 challenge theme over at Penny Black and More is Love is in the Air so I'll be linking this little bear as it looks like love to me! I think this one might just go to DH...
So hope you'll give that challenge a look-in, as I'm sure you have plenty of Valentine cards to share!
Since there are a few snippets in use on this card, and since I missed several weeks over at the Snippets Playground, I think I shall go check on the fence repair progress, and see if the goat has turned up. C'mon along if you can. The weather may be frosty but the welcome will certainly be warm. Just bring along your snippety card as a ticket to enter in the fun.
Our next repair tech just called that he is on his way, so I'm off. We just discovered that our natural gas hot water heater pilot is out; DH's back doesn't want him crouching down to relight it, so have still another fella on call that we hope will show up later. Else we will be getting cold showers, and it's much too chilly for that to be fun! Have a great day, stay warm and come back again when you can visit. Hugs
