I made the background of my card with a piece of a manila folder covered with Glue n' Seal and Melange Tissue Wrap...scrunched in places. I combined Antique Linen, Fired Brick, Spun Sugar, and Walnut Stain Distress Paints with a few mists of water to finish my background. My heart tag background is colored with Victorian Velvet and Frayed Burlap Distress Ink misted with water. The heart stamp is from Dina Wakley and I gave it some sparkle using the Rock Candy Distress Glitter technique found on page 55 of Tim Holtz's Compendium of Curiosities Volume III,
I added a computer generated sentiment on distressed brown paper, a bit of Paper String-Brown Stripes,a piece of ribbon, a gold embellishment with a pink gem and of coarse a key to unlock the heart.
I wish to enter my card in the Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge #21 hosted by the lovely Linda Ledbetter and inspired by Tim Holtz's book of the same name. This weeks challenge is generously sponsored by Inspiration Emporium.
