You've Caught My Heart~

If you clink on the image it will enlarge to show detail...A little corndog twist using the "Fly Fisherman" set I h2h (evilbay). I like it. I've been trying to get creative with my stamps using them in different ways than they may have been intended. Plus, I've been wanting to use this set forever. This is my first "heart" card this year so I better get crackin' if I want to have enough made for the next holiday. Valentines Day is one of my favorite holidays next to Christmas. A few notes re:recipe for this card. I used kraft cs for the base (another favorite of mine), purely pomegranate (pp) for the paper, ink and the ribbon. I used some of my newly acquired SU satin pp ribbon. Love this stuff. Had a bit of a time tying it but with some practice I got the bow I wanted. You can't see the glitter that well so if you click on the image it will show the sparkles better. I'm not sure if I am done with this card or not. I might want to watercolor the main stamp image and add a pop-out heart in pp next to the sentiment. For the sentiment I used the Karen Foster snap-a-stamps to create my own saying. I also added an embellishment heart and curled some tiny wire. I love my invention of curly wire. I think it's so cute. Can you see it? EDITED TO ADD: I masked off the hearts before stamping the main image and I used the stampin-ma-jig to line everything up.
