Grungy valentines

not sure why my computer keeps flipping the image upon uploading it to my blog. Sorry about any neck strain :O)

One of my first custom orders was for a friend's daughter. The daughter is 13 and loves BLACK. So I came up with this really cute 3x3 Valentine card for her. I think it turned out really cute.

Supplies used:

PTI: Black & White Basics patterned paper, True Black Ink, Tiny Treats Valentine stamp set, heart punches

Other supplies: SU! Lovely Lilac cardstock, black grossgrain, bright purple glitter
CTMH Vintage Valentine, Copic marker, UTEE

I punched the hearts from PTI patterned paper, used my COPIC marker to color in parts of the paper. After coloring I wadded up the hearts, distressed the edges a bit with and then I used Versamark and UTEE. I applied several coats of the UTEE to get a nice glossy crumpled heart. I used 1/2" glue dots to adhere the heart to the card. The base image was stamped with CTMH Vintage Valentine images and then layered with the other hearts.

Hope you enjoy these little darlings. I am thinking of translating it into a regular sized card.
