Valentine for a Guy

Hurray--1 Valentine ready for next year!  I used my Impression Obsession stamps "Valentine Wishes" & "Heart Flourish" to enter the Impression Obsession It Must be Love challenge. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark & clear embossed--love the tone on tone look it gives on kraft cardstock. Then I stamped the flourish in opposite corners using Brilliance Rocket Red & colored the dots with my white gel pen.  

I added a bit of piercing in the other corners & used a wet paintbrush to add splotches of Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate.  The panel is mounted to the white card with foam tape. This is also my second entry for the Celebrations challenge at The Kraft Journal. Thank you so much for stopping by.

  11. This has awesome masculine coloring, GG, but it is quite lovely enough for a woman, too! A gender-neutral card is so great for the stash! Hugs, Darnell

  15. Handsome and striking, Greta...actually, let's add classy and elegant to the mix, too *grin* The kraft with red...oh my! And oh my goodness, in the hectic-ness of traveling here and there, and just generalized 'scatteredness', I totally forgot to wish you Happy Birthday..so I'm doing so now; HAPPY BIRTHDAY, dear friend! Something just 'might' be fluttering your way...tee hee....
    Hugs galore,
