To my valentine!!!love you mr!!!

Hey there
Well he is a very unlike me card, made with some more of my new birthday pressie stamps....and I am chuffed with the end result...this is for my hubbie, love you mr!!!
So here it is:

I started with the background using DI and the spritzing with water and drying..I
I love this technique and never tire of it........then I stamped the love definition in aged mahogany..to create a background.The other half was coloured with DI and then this fab Tim flourish stamped over it.

The middle panels are made on the same way and the sentiment and cherub were stamped with gold black detail embossing powder....I coloured the cherub using DI.

I added a small amount of fired brick stickles to the cherubs wings.The ribbon and lace were coloured using DI from craft mat. I made the heart using utee in my melt pot and a craftynotions mould...I know Mrs predictable...just love making these! I added some brads to some of the flowers and made a heart piece to go in the type charm.Finally I added a couple of keys.

Let me know what you think,
All Tims fab ideas and techniques can be found here.

Thanks for all your kindly comments, they make my day!!
