I cheated and made two of the same cards, but in two different shades of red and different designer papers.
I first stamped Will You Be My Valentine? by Simon Says Stamp "Paper Hugs" with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I put Distress Ink "Barn Door" on my craft mat and added some water and smooshed my water color paper over the red ink.
I sponged Distress Ink in "Barn Door" over the piece of designer paper from Crate Paper "Hello Love" for the ombre look. I added some white gel pen to the hearts on the designer paper, but my white looks pink against the red. I added a stamped heart from the "Paper Hugs" stamp set in "Barn Door" and finished off the card, by adding some heart sequins.
On the second card, I did the same process, but used Distress Ink in "Festive Berry" and used a piece of designer paper from PTI called "Holiday Plaid Patterned Paper". I added some silver thread and some heart sequins to finish off this card.
Thank you so much for stopping by, I love it when you do.
