Hearts that Flourish Mixed Media Valentine Card

Autumn with you today to share a lovey dovey Valentine made with some of your favorite not so Valentine stamps.

I started by making a mask for the Vintage Frame stencil and stamping around the mask with the Script background stamp in black.

I used modeling paste through the stencil, then used Distress Ink to watercolor my background.

I stamped the leaves from the Blooming Great set in Picked Raspberry and fussy cut.  I embossed the flower from the same set in white, then dipped into watery Spun Sugar.  I stamped Vintage Flourish in Picked Raspberry onto a heart die cut and embossed with clear embossing powder.

I layered with a few other dies and cheesecloth.

I was going for high contrast and added some metallic silver card to the mix.  The heart is just so beautiful with this pattern, don't you think?  I hope you are inspired to think outside of the box with your IndigoBlu stamps today.

You still have time to enter our Love is All You Need challenge for a chance to win IndigoBlu stamps!  We hope you'll join us.
