I received one of Michelle's gorgeous Hearts & Flowers blank note card. How pretty is this? She sells them in her Etsy shop, which you can access through the link above. I decided that I wanted to do something non-Valentiney with mine, not to be difficult, but just because I'm really not the traditional Valentine type. I've got a set of four Walnut Inks that I don't use as often as I feel I should, so my first plan was to do multiple sprayings/wipings with the different colors, and then to gild the raised portions just a bit with some Pearl Ex powders.
I was so happy with the results of the multiple layers of inks that I came close to just stopping right there. But I still felt that a bit of glitz would help with the Valentine feel which was now totally lacking.
I added red, green, and gold...not exactly Valentine colors, but I'm very happy with it!
