Love and Romance

We all like a bit of Love and Romance and of course February is the month that we all concentrate on to show someone special our feelings.  I am no different from anybody else and this little card is how I have expressed myself!

I began with taking a piece of White Card and attaching my new 6 x 6 Seaweed Stencil from Clarity Stamp to the back.  I then ran this through my Bigshot.  I taped this onto a piece of copy paper (leaving the stencil in place underneath...I simply forgot to take it out)  I shaded around the edges with Red ink from my Ranger Big n Juicy red ink pad using an Ink Duster. I stamped Small Birch Leaves randomly. I also stamped in the sentiment Loved You Yesterday...



At this stage I took a make-up sponge and darkened all around the edges. I then took my Pro Marker - Poppy and drew in some small hearts.  I also added some Satin Hearts which I coloured using the Pro Marker.  The hearts came from a pink ribbon and some of the inserts were still attached so I made good use of them.

I trimmed my image and once again using my Pro Marker I took it along the edges.  I mounted this onto White Card, added an insert (can't show you as it is personal).  Then hunted through my stash for an envelope to fit.  Then I have had to wait to write my post as I had no internet for nearly a month!  The card looks quite pink here but in real life it is red...promise!   Note to self! Have to get that lighting adjusted.

I am entering this card into the following challenge:
