Happy Valentine's Day - Resist Tech

My turn today BIG GRIN. And I'm using the Resist technique Holly showcased earlier this month. Love doing this resist... as well as using 3 stamps from the Valentine set - love this set... and the frame from the Happy Family set. OK so Valentine's day has passed you say... well I'm getting ready for next year's Valentine's day...

4"w x 6.5"h
 I side folded my white card and ran it through my machine with the Couture Creations "Tied Together" folder, then sponged very lightly with a dirty pink sponge.

Stamped the flourished heart onto a piece of Speedball rubber, and cut around the image, leaving a small border. Used this rubber stamp and stamped with Perfect Medium randomly on some white cardstock, clear embossed. Spritzed with some water and crumpled the cardstock several times till I had the creases and cracks I wanted. Dried the cardstock. Sponged with Distress "Spun Sugar", "Picked Raspberry" & "Shaded Violet". Ironed off the embossing between some clean newsprint using a hot dry iron. Then stamped the "Flourished Heart" onto one of the solid hearts with the black and clear embossed. Trimmed down to fit my card edges and layered onto a Fuchsia colored cardstock.

Stamped the "Happy Valentine's Day" with the black on white cardstock, cut it out in a file tab shape and layered on to the Fuchsia cardstock, trimmed that and adhered it to the top of the card, then adhered my resist piece and trimmed to the edges of the card.

Stamped the quote and flourished frame with the black and clear embossed both. Then colored some areas with Sakura Metallic Gel Pens, moving the color with a waterbrush.

As a final touch, added Liquid Pearls "White Opals" dots on the embossed Tied Together design.
