Happy Valentines day...

Did you all get spoilt this morning? breakfast in bed, a red rose and a card??? lol My OH is very good, but, several years ago I did tell him I'd rather have crafty stash than red roses on Valentines day!! well! lolxx

I have taken a tall and narrow printers tray from Tando and made this:-

Instead of painting the background with acryllics before I assembled the tray I decided to spray it with Dylusions inks and then dry and over stamp using various Tim Holtz and Technique Tuesday stamps....  Whilst this was drying I glued the three layers together and then painted with black acryllic paint and then added a swipe of red inka gold....when the base was dry I glued it all together....The gold heart in the top right hand box is made out of friendly plastic and the three little red hearts beside it are pop outs from Tando's Karen's Frames....these were coated with Glossy accents....the heart and swirl at the bottom of the tray are from Tando and have been painted using distress stains and then outlined with black pen before being covered in glossy accents and then a jewel added....various ideology pieces and ticket stamp by Tim Holtz were also added to the piece...a little metal cupid finished it all off.

Hope you all have a lovely day
