Timeless Tuesday #257: Feel the Love

Tuesday, February 4, 2014

It's time for another Timeless Tuesday Challenge, but before I get to that, I have a couple other things to mention. First of all, be sure to check out Flourishes' Gamblers Sale. Everything is 30% off! If you love Flourishes stamps, now is the time to buy! Secondly, on a sad note, Jan Marie, the owner of Flourishes, is stepping down from Flourishes. I won't go into details, as you can read her letter here, but this is definitely a sad day for the stamping world. :(




Today's Timeless Tuesday Challenge is hosted by the fabulously talented Deborah, and with Valentine's Day just around the corner, she is challenging us to "Feel the Love," by creating a card that incorporates love and the color red.



I don't think any flower says love better than a red rose, so I used the Roses Are Red stamp set for my card.
I first cut it using the Roses Are Red Silhouette Cut File, then stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it using Copic markers. The "love you!" sentiment, which is part of a stamp from the Wild Roses stamp set, was heat embossed with red glitter embossing powder, and I used several stamps from the So Distressed stamp set to distress the dp. 
The Valentine's Day text is from the Roses Are Red stamp set, the leaves stamped in the corner are from the Wild Roses stamp set, and after coloring the itty bitty heart apostrophe with a red Copic, I used a tan Copic to scribble over the text.

Feeling the love yet? I hope so! Come play along! You don't have to use Flourishes stamps, but if you do, you get two ballots toward the weekly prize! You can find all the details for the challenge here.

Oh, and while you are feeling the love, be sure to leave some blog love for the DT. Their creations are going to leave you speechless! :)

~Hugs,
