I am back to share the Valentine's Day card I made for my Mother-in-law. I shared my Mom's card a few posts back. We were not able to find a portrait of my Mother-in-law's Mom, but did find a couple of candid snapshots. I picked this picture because of her sweet smile and gentle expression.
I would like to enter this card in A Vintage Journey's-Challenge 24 Love is in the Air. I used all kinds of Tim things while making this card. The trellis is made of the wood grain paper from the Resist Paper Stash Motif and the Lattice Frameworks Die. I then painted it with a thin layer of Antique Linen Distress Paint, roughened the edges and distressed with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.
I used the Latticework stencil with Fired Brick and Victorian Velvet Distress ink to add some interest to my background. I even brushed in Wendy's Tea Rose Archival Ink to add a more peachy tint. My cupid was shaded with Fired Brick, Victorian Velvet and Frayed Burlap and a few mists of water. I used a technique that Tim shared in his December 2014 tag tutorial to add a little sparkle with Rock Candy Distress Glitter.
I finished with a tag covered with paper from my stash, painted lightly with Antique Linen paint and stamped with a Valentine's Day stamp. I added a piece of green twine tied in a bow.
