Two Valentine Cards

Hi everyone! Melissa here for Gina's Designs.  I think this chipboard fit so well with the Valentine theme.  On the hearts and swirls type,and for the small piece of frame on the right side card I did the following:

1.Paint with white acrylic.
2. Paint hearts with pink Twinkling H20s and watercolors,mixed with Pearlex. 
3.Paint swirls with a mix of brown watercolor, and green acrylic paint.
4. Dry brush liquid gold leaf paint.

On the white hearts I put stickles over white acrylic paint.

Here are the steps to make the green leaves on the right: 
1. Prep with gesso.
2.Paint with green chalk ink.
3. While wet put on some green and brown watercolor.
4.Ink the edges with a green distress ink pad.
5. Apply a thick coat of crackle accent.
6. Brush on some purple Pearlex.

Thanks for looking!

  1. I commented here twice, but it did not work the first time. You have made some pretty additions to your blog since my last visit. Pretty cards, papers and embells. I haven't had much opportunity to roam my friends' blogs for some time but wanted to pop by to say hello. Have a great weekend. Fran
