Happy Valentine's Day

Hi everyone!  Just a quick post to share a Valentine's Day card.  I am very happy with the results of applying Distress Pint on wood veneer embellishments:

During Christmas sale I got quite a bit of wood veneer embellishments but I have not really used them until recently.  I love how Distress Paint gives full color coverage!

My card is based on the sketch from Mojo Monday:

The sketch looks complicated and I was intimidated when I first saw it.  I'm glad that I tried it out and made a V-day card.  :)  I've also played with the Wink of Stella Clear brush - I added the shimmer to the word "LOVED" and 2 (heart) 14.  The heart was added glossy accent after the shimmer has dried.  It is quite a bit of dimension.  Love it.

My card is linking up to the following challenges:
Artistic Inspiration - Anything Goes/Hearts
Crafty Your Passion - Love is in the Air
Lexi's Creations - Valentine's Day
The Paper Nest Doll - Anything Goes
Cheerful Stamppad - Love/Valentine
