I Love You Every Day

Hi friends and happy Monday and happy February! Here's to the beginning of what I hope will be a great week and an even better month for everyone! Today I played around with stencils, pastes and sprays to create my first Valentine card of the season. I really enjoyed making this one today. I think I needed the messy therapy! And looky--it just so happened to be perfect for this month's Mixed Media Card Challenge #20- RED (with optional hearts). What fun! Why not get your Valentine mixed media mojo on and come play along too? I love encouraging people to join in like I did! :)
 The base panel is a very study piece of watercolor cardstock by Tim Holtz. I used one of my favorites, this Sa Crafters 6x6" stencil-heart strips with a mixture of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Whipped Spackle and Glass Bead Glitter Gel. The hearts were layered over Finnabair Antique Silver Crackle Paste, which was layered atop Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Spray in Vintage Pink and Pearl and also Baseboard Mist Paint in Fire. I stamped here and there with a chicken wire stamp and a French script stamp in Jet Black Versamark Ink. And my love for the new Simple Stories-Life In Color collection continues as I added some of the little do-dads and sentiment stickers as well as a couple pieces of chipboard, which I colored with 2 different mediums. I rubbed DecoArt Metallic Lustre wax in Black Shimmer into the chipboard piece and it turned out so cool! I shot the heart with a spritz of Baseboad Mist Paint in Fire. A few sequins and a spare piece of white mini pompom trim to finish. Look at all that yummy texture, mmm.....
Thanks so much for visiting me! I love it when you do! As always, I wish you a most creative and blessed day!
