Happy Valentine's Day!!
This is my Valentine...I did this one for me! I cut a heart out of a cereal box and painted the back side in cream and the front in pink, then a layer of crackle paint, then a layer of cream and when it cracked the pink was showing through. I used Ranger Distress Inks to distress the edges and I went over some of the crackle to add more pink to the heart. Next I added the doily and left one side of the doily open so I could insert my tag inside. The next step was to hot glue the edging all around the heart. Then I cut a piece of card stock using the new Marianne (Anja) die and made my tag. A couple of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts edged in the same shade of pink distressed ink and a couple of skeleton leaves and it is all mine! Most everything I do is for someone else, but this time, I decided I wanted to keep it. I plan to make a wall hanging out of it and display it in my craft room.
I hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day and that your sweetie is good to you!
Be sure and come back tomorrow as it will once again be a Heartfelt Creations Wednesday and I have another card to share with you!
