Sealed With A Kiss

Here is the card I made for my Hubby for Valentine's Day this year.  I had envisioned this one in my mind since I received the Warmth of Winter stamp set from Unity.  I coloured the foxes with distress markers and a watercolour brush.  I masked them and stamped the woodgrain background with second generation Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.  I toyed with the idea of creating the hearts through the stencil by rubbing distress ink through it, but that was before I decided to to use the woodgrain background.  Then I thought of using clear embossing paste tinted with colour and I love how it turned out.  The sentiments are from Unity's January KOM - Magic of Beginnings.  The inside reads 'The Best is Yet to Be'.



I'm entering my card in the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - All Creatures Great and Small and The Pink Elephant Challenge #285 - Be My Valentine
