another HEART lovely!




HAPPY VALENTINES 
DAY!!!

I had a moment and was playing around and decided to pull out a template I had made.
(If you would like more info on how to make the template check out one of my video tutorials.)








I created the card base using a piece of Kraft Resist Paper.
I dabbed on a few splotches of Distress Stain.
I then white washed over it with watered down Gesso. 

I placed the template on the card face and
dabbed on some Molding Paste. When dry I dipped my paint brush into a puddle of Distress Stain
and brushed it over the Molding Paste. 














I then cut two hearts from Crinoline and
colored them with the same Distress Stain.
For effect I dry brushed on some Gesso. Gently tied a piece of string around the two hearts and tied it off. 

I had wrote LOVE YOU on scraps of Kraft Resist and dry brushed Gesso on each letter!


I know...
the chocolates, cards and gifts are WONDERFUL
but LOVE....now that's the biggest gift of ALL!!
