Dear Valentine

With Valentine's Day just around the corner,
thoughts turn to love & romance.

I used patterned papers by my favourite K & Company designer, Brenda Walton
to cover a mountboard heart.

The edges were sanded.

I punched two holes in the top with my Crop-a-dile,
through which to thread some of my favourite ribbon.

I composed a Haiku poem & printed the words out using a typewriter font,
so as not to give any clues as to who wrote it!

I used a little black ink around the cut out elements & the torn papers,
Distress Ink over the typed words (antique linen)
& the elements were coated in Glossy Accents.

More ribbon & an old button for added texture & dimension.
