Happy Valentines x

Just a quick post today to share the card I made for my Man


I decided on a retro vintage feel for the surprise tag card.
I used Tim Holtz 'vintage love' paper from the 'seasonal stack' and his 'love struck' stamp set. 


I also used the 'love struck' alteration die, distress ink, 'rock candy' distress stickles and glossy accents.
This is the card flat, I did 2 shots as you can see the sparkle of the distress stickles, and the glossy accents I put over the mini blackboard.


You pull the tag and the message appears, As you can see it's not really visible in all lights.
I embossed with distress powder but it faded into the black background, so a covered the whole thing with 'white fire' treasure gold, and then lightly sanded over the top, allowing you to see the message in certain light.


I'm entering this in The 3 Muses challenge as their theme is 'Red'
I hope each and everyone one of you has a wonderful day,
I'll be back tomorrow with my PaperArtsy Challenge piece.
Till then...
Stay Inky
