Will You Be My Valentine?



The Paper Players challenge for this week is asking us to use a Valentine theme. I decided to play with some of my favorite dies and stamps from Reverse Confetti's January release!  



I previously made a pink/red/white version of the same layout, but this time I went with non-traditional colors thinking this would work well for a masculine recipient.  The background is a leftover panel from a day I was experimenting with alcohol ink blending.  I splattered some gold paint over it then layered the Falling Hearts die and a white embossed sentiment strip with a sentiment from the Heart Filled Sentiments stamp set. 

STAMPS: Heart Filled Sentiments (Reverse Confetti).
PAPER: White and Tropical Teal (PTI), Lime Green (RC).
INK: Versamark; Ranger alcohol inks.
DIES: Falling Hearts by Reverse Confetti.

Love this! From the thumbnail, I thought you had masked to create the background... but having a die cut is even better. Love the touch of gold! Thanks so much for joining us at The Paper Players this week!
