I recently got some new stamps from Concord and 9th thanks to my fab blog buddy, Hazel from Hazel's Paper Designs. They have some really cool designs (and for those of you in the UK, you can get them at Seven Hills Crafts).
I stamped the gorgeous tree trunk and watercoloured with distress inks. I die cut a heart and combined it with a word die from Simon Says Stamp. A bit of pencil shading around the outside adds some depth. I really like how this valentine worked out as it isn't too pretty and will work for my hubby!
There are lots of love and valentine inspired challenges on the go at the moment so I shall link my card up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge - Have a Heart, AAA Cards - Love Me Like You Do, Time Out - Love is the Flower You've Got to Let Grow and Inkspirational where I was inspired by the woodgrain, the heart and love theme. I will also join in at CASology where the theme is Valentines too :) That is me loved up enough for one year!
We have another Uniko set to share with you tomorrow.....its all go :)
