Words of Love

Do words of love make your heart flutter?  They make mine flutter if they're said by my sweetheart!  
Are you ready for the new Dreamweaver challenge for the month of February? It will be a short month of posts for the Dream Team, but we're pretty excited to share with you our versions of "February Flutters", meaning anything that flutters. Heart flutters, wings that flutter, breezes, sails, etc. So, come along for the ride and link your own "flutterings" to the Dream It Up! blog for a chance to win the stencil of your choice. Meanwhile, here's my "fluttering" for the week:

I love the patterned paper with the words as it's little snippets from love letters written years ago.  I think that's really cool!  

Here's what I used to create this card:

Richeson's Acrylics in Scarlet, Crimson Red, Titanium White and Mars Black
Bazzill Cardstock
Echo Park "Yours Truly" Patterned Paper
Bo Bunny "Garden Girl - Wild Flowers" Patterned Paper
May Arts Ribbons
Me & My Big Ideas Pink Multi Pack Rhinestones
Studio 18 Rhinestones Strass Green
Zip Dry Adhesive

Here's how I did it:

Trim papers to desired size
Tape down paper and stencil in preparation of pasting
Mix white paste with paints until you get the desired color, I went with a nice plum
Spread on paste and once applied, remove stencil (put in water right away), and set aside to dry
Once partially dry, apply Metallic FX with a Q-Tip and then heat with a heat tool to complete drying
Using the same Q-Tip, smudge some of the Metallic FX in various spots around the paper
Adhere patterned papers
Create bow with 2 ribbons and adhere to card
Adhere patterned papers to card base
Complete card by adding rhinestones as shown

This was a super easy card to create and I love the finished project.  I think the rhinestones give it just the right touch and balance the bow.  I love how the Metallic FX looks smeared around the paper! Here's the list of my teammates that have projects for your viewing pleasure, be sure to leave them some love:

Thanks for stopping by today and I'll see you again soon.
