Happy Valentines Day

Hi everyone, 
Thanks so much for popping in today. 
I just wanted to say 
Happy Valentines Day to you all, 
You are wonderful and loved 
and deserve a beautiful day. 

As I am typing this , those lovely words I am sat in my craft room with Eric resting on my feet
Tissues by my side and a hot lemon.
I really wish I could start to feel better, the pain in my glands is just no fun at all. 
Hey hoo, I know some of you are in pain everyday, bless you 
Gentle group hug 

As it is Valentines Day
I thought it was a good day to share another sample for our Lavinia Challenge 
Love is all Around 

I went with gilding flakes and opulence for this one 

First some black card, Sizzix 3D adhesive paste and our replenish stencil.

Gently apply the paste through the stencil, I like to use a pallet knife 

Next remove the stencil and give it a good wash in warm soapy water. 

Leave it to dry , for me it takes about 50minutes.
You will see it turn from white to shiny black 

Then the fun of adding the gilding flakes.
I always find rubbing my hands with my antistatic bag before helps. 

Some gentle polishing and look 

Next some stamping and adding colour with my no 3 stencil brush 

I used some Lokta paper for added texture, (using a wet paintbrush to help tear a lovely edge ) 

Some playtime to assemble the design, a sentiment 
and some white posca splats 

Lots of love went into making this card 
Here is a closer look 

I hope you have a wonderful day 

Take care 
Much love and hugs 
Jo xxx🧡
