Funky Fossil Vintage Valentine Card

Are you so over the festive season?  I found it quite refreshing making this vintage style Valentine's card using an assortment of products from Funky Fossil Designs. 

I had a tidy of my desk and found a project part way through that I had forgotten about, so I decided to work with what I had and make a card.

For the background, I used the Funky Fossil "Woodgrain Heart Stencil" with Antique Linen Distress Oxide Ink. I then used the Funky Fossil " A7 Woodgrain stamp" with "Ground Espresso" Distress Oxide Ink. (The project was at this stage when I found it).

I decided to mask off the heart and used "Evergreen Bough" with a blending brush to create the green blue background.  Using the same ink, I stamped the script using the Funky Fossil "A7 Vintage Script stamp".

Around the edge of the card, I used more "Ground Espresso" Distress Oxide Ink to give it a more vintage look.  I then splattered water droplets from a fan paint brush, left them for a few seconds before lifting off the surplus water with paper towel.

Finally, I used one of the words from the Funky Fossil "MDF Positive Words set", coloured with "Tulip Red" Versafine Clair ink and adhered to the front of the card.
