First is a Valentine for a 97 year old lady in an Assisted Living facility. Darnell requested cards for her at the beginning of the pandemic. Her mind is clear & she enjoys getting cards. I send one about monthly. Such a little thing to brighten her day. Hope she'll enjoy this one with her first initial.
It's from the same Flourishes Letters in Bloom set I used for a card in this post. The heart die cuts are Memory Box Grand Heart & Bingham Heart. I did some partial embossing using a Echo Park Random Dots folder. Years ago my friend, Rosemary, used the technique of embossing by tapping the folder with a mallet instead of using a die cut machine. It let's you put the embossing just where you want it & you can vary the dimension by tapping lighter or harder. I really like how it filled in the empty space.
The V is colored with a Spellbinders silver shimmer pen--so gorgeous in person. I also used a glitter pen on the outline heart. I'm entering Memory Box Alphabets challenge & Dies R Us.
I have a huge collection of spray mists--mostly Tattered Angels. The shimmer is so gorgeous in person. When I saw JUGs challenge theme, I pulled out Caribbean Blue & Meadow Green to use for my entry. Before spraying the panel, I black heat embossed the images from Poppystamps Little Kindness.
When the sprays dried, I used Gelly Roll Stardust pen to color the flower centers & added black splatters.
Really love my new Poppystamps Happy Birthday Poe Script die cuts which are stacked 2 high. I'm also entering Poppystamps Birthday challenge & ModSquad.
