A DynamicDuo Valentine for Tim


After playing with the Close to My Heart Stamp of the Month using black on white with a pop of color, I found myself thinking about white on black with a pop of red and how dramatic that might be, so I random stamped with Versamark and than embossed the design in white to make sure the roses really popped.  The flourish (page 60 cut at 2 1/4) and rose (page 69 cut at 2 1/4) were cut using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  I finished it off with some black and red sparkles.  This is the inside:

It just so happens that the Dynamic Duos color challenge this week is to pair black and red with a valentine theme.  Perfect!

I still have leftover flourishes in black that I am playing with and plan to get them up soon.  Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time,  Hansi
