happy valentine's day

Well, almost.  Hi my friends.  I'm still working on the challenges for the first half of February at OWSE yahoo group.  This one is for a valentine using a vintage image.  When I saw the technique challenge on SCS for tomorrow, I decided to combine the challenges.  I'm also entering this in the February challenge for Inspiration Journal, which is to put a heart on it.

The background is made with wrinkle free distress technique using victorian velvet and tea dye distress inks.  I also crumbled the card stock and added some tea dye ink to highlight the wrinkles.  The edges are distressed and sponged with tea dye ink. 

The digital image is die cut using spellbinders classic ovals and the layer of designer paper behind it using big scallop ovals.

The lace edging is hand crocheted.  All the little hearts are punched from the same paper that is behind the image. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.
