Steampunk Valentine

Hello everyone, I hope all is well.  It's still dreary here and I've been fighting a wicked cold but getting better.

I have a Valentine card to show today, using a cool Steampunk heart by Chocolate Baroque.




Stamps by Chocolate Baroque:  Punky Hearts, Eccentric Edwardian (lettering). 

The Gear die cuts are by Memory Box & metal cogs are by Tim Holtz.   I used a Heart stencil by Tim Holtz with textured paste in the background.  The I Love You die was a freebie and I'm not sure who it's by.

I used Neocolour crayons and a little metallic powder in the background and 'fancy cut' the heart and popped it up.  I added glitter glue around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by
Shirley

  20. Cogs and a "mended" heart and lovely blues - it's terrific, Shirley. I like the way the heart is "popped-up" and edged. Great background too. There is so much to this card, I love it.
