This is my entry for the Valentine competition over on UK Stampers
I took a postcard & used my distress inks to 'age' it
& then used one of my background writing stamps again using distress ink to make the background.
I then stamped the PaperArtsy figures
and the hearts
and the owl post stamp in the appropriate place...
and mounted it onto the background paper on the card.
Finished it off with the ribbon which I stamped directly onto with the Valentine sentiment
& added the brown pearls
and the all important heart for Valentine's Day :-)
The heart was again made from chipboard & heat embossed a technique that I was taught a few years ago at the craft club I belonged to...
