Flights of Valentine Fancy

...or HedgieTime for a new challenge at Penny Black Saturday Challenge.  Our players can volunteer to guest design with us--hope you'll check it out.  It's almost Valentine's Day & our theme is to use red &/or hearts on your project. Don't forget you must include a Penny Black image--all the details are on the blog.
I began by heat embossing PB Valentine Dance on wc paper, spritzing & adding Ken Oliver Crimson Color Burst.  Splatters of Distress Paint spun sugar & Distress Stain brushed pewter were added.  I colored the little hearts with a Gelly Roll pen & added glitter to the 2 bigger hearts & added some Queen & Co pink droplets.  The doily rescued from under my cup of soup was spritzed with TA Snow Angel, cut into sections & attached to each side.  The red panel is embossed with WRMK 3D embossing folder & the raised areas were watercolored with the spun sugar paint to soften the color & tie in a bit more.  Hope to see you in the gallery.  I'm entering at SSS Wednesday & Time Out. Thanks so much for stopping by.

  13. Oh my gawd! I need to clone myself so I can make more cards. It's been too long since I've played with PB (don't I say that all the time?) but I want to. This is a very sweet card, btw. I should comment on your card now that I'm done ranting. ;-)
