Show It With Words February Challenge

Show It With Words is the February Challenge over at Inspiration Emporium http://blog.inspirationemporium.com/?cat=18  . It's fun to participate for a chance to win $50 to spend in the online store... great way to increase my favorite  Tim Holtz stash. I chose to make a love card with a paper from Authetique's  Lovely Collection because it had letters in it's background and then circled love phrases and words. So perfect for what I had in mind.

I  created my card using  " Be Mine " paper from Authentique Lovely Collection and my Tim Holtz Hearts layering Stencil. Oh so cool I used a technique Tim showed us for the February Tag ( 12 Tags of 2014 ) and I layered hearts on to the " Be Mine "  paper  . Then using  a stamp from my  Tim Holtz Random Quotes Stamp Set I stamped   the sentiment and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. I embellished it with some pieces from the Authentique card making kit; distressing the edges with Walnut stain distressing ink and Worn lipstick distressing ink; added a glittered heart brad and some red bling. Finishing touches were mounting the I love you circle on a punched daisy and adding ribbon at the bottom.

I was very pleased with how the stenciled hearts looked on that paper, I like the faded hearts. And the tiny bling on the glittered heart was a fun touch... girl gotta have her bling!
Another fun challenge... Thank you Inspiration Emporium.
