Hello & Valentine's Day

Very last minute entry for the Altenew January Inspiration challenge.  I smooshed 3 scraps of white cardstock with DI seedless preserves, carved pumpkin & mowed lawn.

Then I die cut my new Altenew Wild Rose 3D dies & added splatters of white gauche.  The background is Altenew Watercolor Stripes die cut from vellum & added to a white card with black splatters.
The sentiment from Altenew Painted Greetings was white embossed on a black scrap & I added some black sequins.  I'm also entering WAW.

Next is my entry for MFT Color Challenge 134.  Teal & gray aren't usual colors for a Valentine, but that's what I made.
I couldn't resist the MFT Mistletoe coverplate when it was 1/2 half off.  I inked the mistletoe with teal ink, covered it with watermark ink & embossed with Hero Arts Sparkle powder--really pretty in person.
The light teal cardstock was dry embossed with a swirly hearts folder for added interest.  I stamped the MFT sentiment on a light gray scrap in Versafine Clair Morning Mist.  The mat was made from another scrap of the light gray cardstock which I inked with Morning Mist so it would match.  I'm also entering SSS Monday & SSS Wednesday.


Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you.

  17. A glorious bloom on the first card with great texture achieved by layering. Love the teal for Valentines - who dictated the use of red and pink anyway? I much prefer your colour choice. Have a great week. x
