The Color of LOVE
Here's what I did: I painted the background with a bit of red and then smeared black ink on top, to go behind the heart to make it "pop," along with stickles on the wings. I stamped and embossed the letters and the winged heart. I wanted black metal hearts at top left but did not have any. Therefore, I sanded some silver, metal, heart snaps, wiped them across a black ink pad and then dipped them into my black embossing powder and heated, to create black hearts. I love how they turned out. I frayed the ribbon to keep the look a bit shabby chic.
I really love this card and took numerous photos to try to highlight it. I really don't think this photo does it justice. As soon, as I showed it to my dh, he said, "That's beautiful." Wow! That really made me smile, since he usually says, "that's nice" or "it's cute." So glad he likes it seeing that in 13 more days he'll be seeing it again..with a special note inside. LOL!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone! See ya next week with another crafty creation!
