love 45

Hi there! Today I have a mixed media style Valentine's Day card to share featuring lots of texture:
For color, I combined the following various ColourArte Silks Acrylic Glazes: SLK-140 Bolivian Blue, SLK-148 African Jade and SLK-121 Stargazer:
To create texture to the background, I used texture paste along with the MFT Brick Wall stencil and Golden Gel Beads:
The trio of die cut grungeboard hearts were covered with crackle paste. Once dry, ColourArte Silver Bells Silks Acrylic Glaze was applied to give the hearts a shimmery metallic appearance: 
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current cardabilities sketch challenge:
I was inspired by the metallic hearts in the current Fusion challenge inspiration photo:
and for the theme inspiration, the current Mixed Media Card Challenge LOVE themed challenge:
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great Tuesday!
Be Sweet ;)
