DT Try it on Tuesdays

Dearest Minions,

This is my new piece for Try it on Tuesdays, our latest challenge is "get ready to celebrate" the piece must have a heart on it ready for the commericalism that is Valentines day on Feb 14th.

The background is a bit of cardboard that I sprayed with inks and then embossed. I hightled the swirls with distress ink but it just soaked in so I employed my trusty staz-on for the job. The large heart is again cardboard that I sprayed, stamped and heat embossed and the smaller heart is a rusty tin heart from Calio craft. The word rejoice is stamped from a my mind's eye set.

I am also entering this into the fasionable stamping challenges.

I wanted to make it into a wee gift so I added a fridge magnet which I stuck on to the tin heart.
here is a close up on the happy loon.

Love this card and the layers. Spraying the ink is a great look. And thanks for your tip the other day. Going to try the make up sponge next time.

I was interested to see what your take on Valentines would be, and had a chuckle at your obvious disdain for the commercialization of Valentines Day, but any holiday they want to enforce giving chocolate as part of it, I will gladly accept. OK, so I'm a chocoholic!!! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥

I'm with Sandee on the chocolate giving front - got to be good even if it's all got too commercialized!! Love your grungy heart and embossed background EE! x
