Vintage Valentine


I'm the hostess for today's Ways To Use It Challenge.  I thought it would be fun to do a Valentine, but with no red or pink on it.  So mine has a vintage feel to it.  I started with brown and just couldn't help adding some blue!  The heart is from Stampin' Up's Always set.  I stamped it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I then watercolour painted on some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink Reinker onto it.  I layered some burlap, cardstock, and corrugated cardboard (from a starbucks cup) under the heart.  The patterned paper is from Bo Bunny and the flower is from the dollar store.  Oh, and it's hard to see in the photo, but there is a brown ruffle along the bottom.  This is one of Tim Holtz's Trimmings dyed with Vintage Photo Reinker. 

Thanks so much for visiting today!
