Valentine's Fun

Hello Everybody!

I just love how this card turned out!  This is a Bugaboo Digi (I love their stick people!)  The background was done using the Shaving Cream Technique over at Technique Time Tuesday.  It was one of the first "prints" I had done and it isn't very swirly.  But for this card it is awesome because I wanted it to be a background.  That I covered with gesso and a Heidi Swapp chevron stencil.  :)  I usually use light modeling paste but I have seen folks using gesso and wanted to give it a try.  

The red ink in the background and around the happy little Valentine girl is from Close to My Heart-Holiday Red.  I love this color!  It is so happy and bright.  I used a Tim Holtz applicator to put it around the square so I didn't have to worry with matching colors.  And I pop dotted the focal image.  

I am submitting this to the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time my friends...more pink and red ;)
