Love is...

Happy Valentine's day to all my blog friends! Here is a final Valentine card I made a couple of weeks ago using an unusual color combination of Kraft, pink and cream.  I used the lovely 'Emma's Swing' because she looks like she got that bouquet of roses from a secret admirer. I stamped her in Latte Adirondack ink and colored her with Copics.

The patterned paper was all stamped with some of the great clear stamp sets LOTV released not too long ago, perfect background building sets. First I stamped the roses from the Roses clear set in pink pigment ink on Fine Linen cardstock. When that dried I went back with some Kraft colored ink and used the Grunge Corners to add some distressing. Then I sponged the corners with Distress inks for a little more aging. 

The love tag is from the Love Sentiments stamp set framed with a Spellbinders Fleur de Lis square. 

Well that's all for now, I hope you have a lovely Valentine's Day shared with someone you love. Me and Jimmy are heading for our favorite Argentine restaurant after work for a little skirt steak! Mmm mmm...

Thanks for stopping by!
