Another Valentine

Here is another valentine  -this one "shabby chic" style for my friend Wendy. I had a nice visit and cup of tea yesterday with her.

The heart verse is a new cling by Stampendous. I also stamped along the bottom edge of the heart with a "grunge" style  stamp; cut out with spellbinders die; sponged with TH Fired Brick and Tea Dye distress inks; finally spritzed with Tattered Angels Irridescent Gold spray.  I also cut out a scalloped layer of red organza to place on top of the red card stock. It gives the heart a nice shimmery finish on the scallop edging. A heart "bling" stone is attached to the bottom.

The beige rectangle layer is a die cut;  however, I stamped it with a Tim Holtz postcard cling stamp on the right side and sponged with Vintage Photo. Attached vintage lace to the bottom and added two tiny silk roses tied with sheer ribbon.

The background papers I had in my stash are distressed, sponged with distress ink, then I machine stitched around the edge.
