My Sweet Valentine

well it's the last day of the kids' half-term/in-service days so I'm taking them to the local Brewsters to play so that I can minimise the devastation at home.
So today I thought I'd share a wee Valentine project that Letraset asked me to do for their blog.
You can find the step by step tutorial over on the Letraset blog.
Image: Making Valentines from Saturated Canary, coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers on Diamond White card from The Papeterie.
The box used to be a Lindor choc box, painted with "Paloma" Annie Sloan Paint, stamped with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink and Kaisercraft grunge texture stamp. Red grosgrain ribbon from stash and fleur de lis nestabilities die to cut the red card (from The Papeterie)

I'd like to enter her into:

Delightful - especially with the spotty patches on her knees. I love the grungy covering you gave the box - very effective with the Victorain Velvet stamping and the red elements.
