Valentine Card.

Hello Everyone,
My second card this month using Drips and Drops in my design and this time I  made a Valentine Card.

To make the Heart.
I cut two heart shapes freehand out of the cardstock, I painted up one and the smaller one I ripped in half after wet and dry embossing.

Making my drips, I manipulated the ones on the left by running my wet brush down the card first, then dropping the wet paint in the centre, moving my card so that they the paint will run off the edges (top and bottom.)
The drops are White Acrylic paint from a pipette.

I finished off the Heart with a small wooden flower, stitching and Treasure Gold. 
Stamping a border in Blue the White Ink.
Placing some cheesecloth behind.

Adding little buttons.

The text are stick-ons, some cross stitches and tissue tape.

Matting it up with Red and Black cardstock on a Cream Card.

Entering Feb Challenges-

The Challenge for 'Drips and Drops' can be found at Country View Crafts. and it runs for the whole month.

Have a great week,

This is what I really hopped over from CVC to see - a fabulous rainbow of drippage, and those wonderful stringy strands. A glorious card, Sue!
