Sharing the Love for Try It On Tuesday

The New Challenge Theme over at
I'm not a Valentine type person so went
for a simple Love You card that I can
 give to someone special.

I played with my favourite Visible Image
Creative Chaos Stamp Set and enjoyed going grungy.
I started with my background smooching
with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Hickory Smoke.
Added some grunge stamping from STAMPlorations
and then painted down one side with 
diluted black gesso.
Heat embossing first with Zing Charcoal
then that gorgeous flower with Ranger Black.
Did the same again on watercolour paper
that had been inked with Lindy's Powders and Brusho's.
Attached the popped flower after I
added Nuvo Glitter in red.
Flicked some ink and coloured some of the
circles with Liquid Pearls.
Sentiment is from Altenew.
Corner rounded one side and attached to
basic white card stock.

Here's a close up.

I'm not sure if this is CAS enough for the
in adding to the Gallery for the red and black theme,
and most of all I had 'fun' making it.

Thanks for dropping in to check my card out.
Love reading your comments.
Till next time Cherrio from

Boy howdy, do I LOVE this. It's simply stunning with the red against the black. And that texture is amazing, you are a master with that. This is just beautiful, I like everything about it.

That is a gorgeous card. I am not going to make any more Valentines either as I think I have plenty on hand.

Gorgeous mixed media design, Ina! LOVE the gray background with the black gesso over top. The beautiful red flower really pops against the black. Wonderful collage stamping, and the black and red drops really are the perfect finishing touch! xx
