Love is in the air........

Evening fellow crafty bloggers hope you haven't been buffeted about by the winds too much, we have so far escaped the rain, just very high winds here. Last week my sis and I  spent part of the weekend at Champneys spa for our annual pamper day, massages, sleeping and then more sleeping as well as eating healthy food, not a bar of chocolate insight........soon made up for that though.
With Valentines fast approaching I thought I would make a romantic card, suitable for a wedding/anniversary.

The flowers are white and then I added water and a little paint (Shimmering H2Os)
to them,  then added more water to dilute the colours down again, finished
with a splash of white gesso and then sprinkled them with glitter. Love the subtle effect
so I will definitely be doing this to my flowers again.
The heart stamp is from Chocolate Baroque and is one of my favourite stamps
which comes out at this time of year, I stamped and embossed in gold on watercolour paper, then using lots of water and a small amount of shimmering H2Os in three different colours I painted the
heart in, then I fussy cut around it and cut down the middle of the heart to divide it in two.
The frame die is from Noor Design and is perfect for these vintage images.
