Sending Red Lurve!

I have been trying and trying out the Distress Inks for colouring and think I am getting there. Any tips gratefully received. I have totally enjoyed colouring my new Tilda in even though she is from the Christmas Collection. I think she works well for other occasions too.

All over the challenges this week there are beautiful Reds and Hearts so I hope this card hits a few. Go and check out the amazing creations and PRIZES on offer on each of the Blogs. A lot of the time I kinda feel inadequate when I look at the creations made by others but I enjoy the process so keep going. It is always good to have something to aim at.

1. Cupcake Craft Challenge - 'Seeing Red'

2. Stamping for the Weekend - St Valentine's Day

3. Moving Along With The Times - 'Red'

4. Crafty Cardmakers - 'Hearts'

5. Allsorts challenge - 'It Must Be Love, Love, Love'

I've used Wild Rose Studio Papers and Marianne D and Sizzix shapes. Lots of Stardust Stickles with some lace and some red heart gems. Not to mention buttons. This is a card I am quite happy with even though it is quite OTT for me.

I'm still spotting Valentine's gifts that are worthy of pictures for their oddness or inventiveness. Sending love.

Thanks for stopping by and any thoughts left. XXX
