I have been busy playing with Valentines. I have just a few to create which has me thinking of different ways to use my existing supplies. I was inspired by the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge to Put a Stencil on It.
I spent some time playing with a die cut out of a heart on a piece of white cardstock. I used a mask and a stencil to sponge on the gold and coral/red combinations on the card face. I then decided to cut the heart around the edges but leave the center intact so I could fold up the base heart.
That inspired me to cut out more hearts and layer them with the opposite pattern of colors and stencils.
The background is stamped with a Verses Rubber Stamp - How Do I love Thee. I love this script stamp and don't get to use it often enough. It is the full poem and in beautiful script.
The inks are gold and a mix of abandoned coral and a hint of red. I used the mini harlequin stencil form Tim Holtz Layering Stencils. I stamped the postal mark and the word Love from Stampers Anonymous.
