The background was a mix of gray and red distress stain sprays which became very pink when watered down. :)
I misted on the craft mat and blended and smeared the paper through the inks. I repeated multiple times. After it dried I sprinkled on red and silver again over the surface.
I stamped the word love using silver ink along the left side.
I used the Valentine's layering stencil with Wendy Vecchi black embossing paste over the misted background.
After that I decided to use the flowers leftover from my cherry tree the other week on my tag. I stamped the couple and the word cherish on leftover background from the original tag. I punched a series of hearts and sponged them with red ink and mixed them in the flowers.
