Key to my Heart!

I have an easy Valentine card to share today!  The designer paper is from BoBunny's Love Letters Collection.  Cream cardstock is used for the card base and the stamped elements on the card!  Look at that sheer gold heart ribbon!  One loop tied with seam binding creates this lovely ribbon embellishment with tails!  Super easy! 

The images and sentiment are found in JustRite's Antique Valentine Tags One.  This is a clear set featuring 19 stamps!  I used Versafine Onyx black for all stamping.  The stamped images are hand trimmed and the sentiment is circle punched. The gold hearts are cut from the sheer gold heart ribbon too! The gold heart print on the sheer is a wonderful solid heart image, making it easy to cut out and use as another embellishment! Main designer paper panel and lock stamped image are adhered using Therm-O-Web 3D foam squares.

I want to share how the stamped imaged looks up close.  After I stamped the images, I immediately dry brushed on Perfect Pearls.  It gives a wonderful gold sheen to the stamped image, perfect for a lock & key image, no? Perfect Pearls is a fine dust like medium that can be used dry or mixed with water creating a mist to spray on your art. It comes in various colors and is super easy to use! I placed a piece of 1/8" Scor Tape to the top and bottom of the designer paper panel then dried brushed on the Perfect Pearl powder.  I am pleased how this worked!  I applied Perfect Pearl powder twice and then lightly rubbed with my fingertip smooth and remove any excess powder!  The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store carries a variety of colors in Perfect Pearls!
