Valentine's Day & Victorian Art

I have created two new cards for a class I will be teaching this coming Wednesday. The first card is great for Valentine's Day, and is designed using Impression-Obsession Stamps "Funky Heart", the cling set "My Funky Valentine", and the cling set "Sweet Hearts."
They are all from Impression-Obsession's new Spring catalog. The ribbon is by May Arts. The main image was stamped with Encore Gold pigment ink and embossed with Clear embossing powder. It was painted using Twinkling H2O's and highlighted with Rangers Stickles Diamonds glitter glue. The cardfront and the heart are mounted on Green Mirror Board and IRL look really great! Its hard to see because of the reflection in the flash of the camera.

The embellishment is another version of a stick pin with beads that dangle this time. The clever little end to cover the tip was shown to me by LaVerne Wilson, a fellow Technique Junkie and good friend.

My second card is again Impression-Obsession stamps by Leigh Hannan. The flower is called "Victorian Rose". Twinkling H2O's were used to paint it. I used Rangers Stickles Gold glitter glue to highlight here and there. The very bottom background on Olive cardstock is done using "Large Flourish Three" and Brilliance Galaxy Gold pigment ink. The next layer on the left is Pinata Alcohol Inks on Gold Mirror Board. The Background on the right is done using part of a background technique from Technique Junkies called "Vanilla Double." The gold corners were created using Cuttlebug folder "Formal Squares" from Provo Craft. The eyelash fringe is again from May Arts. The heart charm embellishment is from Fancifuls Inc. , and the gold cord I used to tie it in place is leftover from another project.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask and thanks for stopping by "the blog".
