Red Hot Valentine

Back again today with another card to share :)

I wasnt going to make any more 'lurrve or valentines' cards, but I was having a good old rummage through my stash looking for something completely different, when I found this old red paper pack from Habico, which I have had for yonks!  It had such fabulous textured hand-made papers that there was really only one thing for it .......... a bit of passion! ;) 

I coloured this great Kenny K image (Allura) with pro-markers and glitter pens, and then cunningly transformed some old brown brads with a black promarker, glossy accents and black glitter. ;)  The brads really were essential, as hand-made paper is not only evil to cut straight (why is that?) but its also quite difficult to stick down! (tut) :)  I dont normally put brads through my main card, so I capped them on the inside with black card candy dots (which i thought was a genius idea!) lol.

I am entering this card into the below challenges as Valentines, Love, Hearts and Red seem to be very popular this week :)

Hi Alison, what a gorgeous card. I love the saucy image and your colouring is fab. Thanks for joining us at PFP this week. Hugs, Denise x

Paula said...

I love those two corner embellishments you've concocted. The chandeliers (??) are gorgeous & add a lovely touch of decadence to the whole creation. Think it's the fibres that slide along the blade that makes straight cutting impossible but that's only my layman's take on the matter.
