Happy Valentine's Day!

     Happy Valentine's Day! I had fun with these hearts, on this card that I made for my husband!

     I cut the hearts from white cardstock, and applied black gesso to a couple of gear stencils. Then I added some metal Tim Holtz Sprocket Gears, and also gave them a light coat of black gesso. 

     The large heart was colored with Distress Spray Stain (Candied Apple Red). Then I added some Prima Waxes (Brushed Iron and Old Silver) to the black gesso. Wanting more texture I used my stencils again to emboss the hearts with Emerald Creek ((Rocky Road) Baked Texture and (Mirror Platinum) Embossing Powder, also used on the stamped chicken wire. For the sentiment I used Ranger Mixed Media Powder (Bone).

Thanks for looking!
