Jan 15, 2008 - Distress Inks  "Love U"

Valentines day  Card  6"h x 5"w
I used my Sizzix Dies to punch out the large heart from a piece of mat board. I then covered it with a piece of hand decorated tissue paper (packing type). 

To decorated the tissue paper, I used my melt art mat and with the dipper from the distress bottles, I drew random lines and dots, without squeezing the dipper, (red brick, old paper & vintage photo), then misted both the mat and the tissue paper, moving the paper around until it was covered the way I wanted. I dried it with a hair dryer. Moving the tissue around created all kinds of creases and darker sections.

I added some Peel Offs hearts and then gave it a good coat of Diamond Glaze. Mounted it to another piece of mat board colored with Krylon Gold Leafing pen. I cut a larger piece of pink Bazill monochromatic cardstock, mounted the heart section to it and cut off the excess, trimmed it further to create the frame section. Both of these were mounted to the brown Bazill. Added the "LoveU" Peel Offs and added some white and rose colored glitter.

NOTE: This is one of the designs on the Peel Offs "Love" sheet that have just been released and will be available around Jan 2008 to retail outlets, It comes in gold, silver, black, and white. There will also be "It's a Boy, It's a Girl", You're Invited" Congratulations" "Thanks & "Birthday". Two more will be coming out later in the year I think.
