Blue Valentine

Today I want to share a Valentines Card I made using a lot of products you can find in the Canvas Corp store.

I have used a plain white card (that comes with an envelope). First of all I covered it in clear gesso, then when dry I painted on Glimmer Mist with a really wet brush. After drying I stamped all over the card with a word stamp.

The paper from 7 Gypsies Maritime Collection (Voilier) has the perfect colors for this project. I tore two pieces of paper and distressed the edges before adding them to the card. Sentence cut from the Sending Love Words paper.  The chipboard add dept to the card together with the hearts.

The chipboard was painted with white gesso, then one color of Glimmer Mist, sprinkles of embossing powder, more Glimmer Mist and some Glimmer Glam. The hearts where distressed pretty much the same way. First I cut out the hearts then I embossed them with white embossing powder. After heated dry I painted them with layers of Glimmer Glaze, Glimmer Mist and Glimmer Glam.

I live with my partner and my two children, in a small village the North of Sweden. I work as a Intensive Care Nurse (with Cardiology as speciality). My "style" is colourful and playful. I often use a lot of papers and embellishments. I try to have the photo in focus, and to reflect the feeling of the photo in the layout. I also makes cards and altered projects. If I would call my style something - well maybe Playful Punk Chic? (if i do a romantic layout, I can´t help giving it a playful twist...)
