It's Gotta be LOVE!

Hi There and Welcome to today's posting for
Just Us Girls. It's our Word Week 
and Bobby is Hosting with the word LOVE!
It is February and that says it all.

A pretty simple card concentrating on the LOVE word.
Card stock is Kraft and my background for the Love Heart die
is a mixture of Twinkling H2O's and Tim's Antique Bronze Spray
smooched around with some added lines made from the 
edge of a credit card. (Idea came from Karen Dunbrook)
The gold Love Die was cut from a scrap piece of gold glitter paper
The you from Repeat Impressions is cut from a MFT die.
Added a few splatters of gold and white paint and
my Love card is done.

I'd like to Welcome our February Guest
Tenia Nelson - I'm sure everyone knows
this Super Talented Crafter and come check out
what Love Creations are in store 
from us all over at Our Blog.
This Word is extremely popular for February
so I am sure there will be lots
of  Love to enjoy looking at.
Will yours be in our Gallery this week?
Hope so.

What's My Mark?

Welcome to today's post which is for the 
New Challenge over at
Addicted to Stamps and More which is
Make Your Mark.

I was playing around in my craft room and wondered how
just ordinary re-inkers would look on glossy paper.
So I gave it a go and was pleasantly surprised with the result.
I used SU Marina Mist/Tim's Peacock Feathers
and Dusty Concord Distress Spray Stain.
I then got out my ARTplorations A-Bloom-and-Three-Buds
and added texture paste dabbing with my fingers to get lift.
Once that was dry I Versamarked it then
covered it in PearlEx powder.
I guess you could say I really have Made my Mark!
Now I was really excited as to how gorgeous it looked.
I rubbed a bit off to get a little more colour back on the
left side. This was cut with a stitched die.
Added some coloured cs for  highlighting
then attached to Pearlized card base.
Sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping cut from
a JustRight Tag.

Here's how to
 Make your Mark - your entry MUST contain the use of
