I cut a piece of Ranger Mixed Media cardstock for the card front. I suppose it might have been a bit easier to color the roses if I had used Watercolor paper but I'm still amazed at the depth of color you can get on the Mixed Media paper.I used a Mini Stencil from set #6 and Antique Linen Distress ink for the background. The smaller size of the Mini Stencils makes the scale of the "love" words just perfect for a card front.
Now I've got to get back to helping this little one make Valentines for school. I have a lot of doilies to cut! (but she has the inking and gluing down pat).
