Rusty Embellished Monoprint Valentine with Tim Holtz Dies and Oxides


 Hello friends! It's almost Valentine's Day, and I have one more Valentine card to share with you. While I had my Valentine crafty goodies out for my rusty card I made for Frilly and Funkie HERE, I decided to make one inspired by this tag by my fabulously talented Frilly and Funkie teammate, Zoe Hillman.  I've used Distress Oxides to create a monoprint background and made lots of rusty embellishments with die cuts, paints,crayons, embossing powders, and inks.


  I gave these two good friends a good vintage vibe with my distressing tool, Vintage Photo Distress ink (of course!) and a splatter of Walnut Stain Distress Paint. I added texture to my heart background with an old embossing folder.


The flowers were taken from a vintage hat I picked up at a recent estate sale. The actual hat is standing in as a prop for my first photo. A Quote Chip was chosen for my sentiment, and I layered it on a couple of lace die cuts and some vintage lace from my stash.


  I love Tim's index clips. I altered this clip and tucked in a Remnant Rub. 


That's it for me today! Here's one more shot of my completed Valentine. Happy Valentine's Day!


I'm sharing with these challenges:

  2. Beautiful card, Sara Emily! Love the colors of the background mixed with the grunge. The vintage flowers are a wonderful added touch. I see that hat is filled with quite a few! I have a question--when you apply the Distress Ink to the paper dolls, how do you keep it from rubbing off?
