Well I managed to catch up with a couple of Dt cards yesterday and finish this one thats been a working progress for the best part of the week, sometimes, well truth be know most of the time I stamp something without any pre plan as to the colours or what the fininshed card will look like, I just keep adding bits until eventually it kind of works. This card definately falls into that catergory, the main image was a play at first with the background, then I glimmer misted it then I added some silver embossing to it, then I thought I know colour the leaves with Prisma pencils to see if they colour on top of pre coloured card.......and yes they do. The stamps I used are by Chocolate Baroque called Harlequin Rose. I did get mine when they were called Elusive Images but the stamp set is still the same.
Then I thought, stamp and colour the rose and puff it out for added dimension. The one thing that I knew I wanted to use was the delicious ruffled ribbon which is shimmery and such a lovely colour, then the rest of the card was a trial and error, like the pink hearts that I stuck to the punched out border using a Martha Stewart punch which fit perfectly over the heart punched out bits (you can get those from MeiFlowers).I know its the not a traditional looking Valentines card but I quite like the colour combo, I used Victorian Velvet, Brushed Sage and Dusty Concord for the background and used a Vintage Rose glimmer mist by Tattered Angels to spritz on the top.
