Valentine Card for Facebook Group

Hello Crafters and Makers (:o)

Today i'm sharing a valentine card with you, i've created for a Facebook Group and was received by

I have to mention, that this card was inspired by Brenda Brown and her Ministry of Mixology projects

I stamped the base card with a script stamp and i also used Distress Ink Ground Espresso

The Lollipop sticks are adhered on a strip of cardboard

I've glued down a laser copy

Sanding most of the paper off

Applied a wash of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Transparent Yellow Iron Oxide and Titan Buff.
On top some spots of vaseline

The next step you see drying is DecoArt Media Crackle Paint and when dry you see where i've applied the vaseline, because the Crackle Paint is already coming off with bigger cracks.

I'm also sanding off the loose crackles

This heart i've created from air dry paper clay, had a treatment with Distress Ink Ground Espresso, stamped the same script stamp as on the base card and applied a thick layer of DecoArt Media Crackle Glaze 

On top of the heart i've painted DecoArt Media Antiquing Cream white, to reveal the cracks

The quote stamp is a new release from Stampendous! designed by Andy Skinner called Handle With Care stamp set. The arrow is created from bamboo skewer and rose coloured metal

Happy crafting!

Oh Elly this is gorgeous, I love how you crackled over the sticks and how you can still see some of the imagery underneath and that heart is antiqued to perfection. Thanks so much for the shout out and so happy you were inspired a little from one of my creations. Huge hugs xxx

Oh so unique and lovely Elly. How creative to use the rose colored metal and the feather is perfect. The "wood" background just turned out so awesome. Your heart is beautiful and definitely makes me think that it should be handled with care. YOU KNOW WHAT.... I just realized... that describes YOUR HEART too sweet Elly!!! Xj.
