2Crafty Preparing For Valentines Day

 i am  here today featuring a few of the new releases for 2Crafty.  I am doing a little Valentine's Day preparation using some images from turn-of-the-century cards.   While the chipboard pieces have a Valentine theme on my page, they are perfect for projects all through the year.   Hearts are always fun to use. 

My pieces selected for this layout are 2Crafty :
"Leafy Twig Branches"
"Fancy Damask" 
"Beaded Heart Border"

Here is a photo of the  newly released, 2Crafty "Beaded Heart Border" in it's natural state.  I painted it bold red and then inked it lightly with vintage distress ink to give it a softer vintage appeal.   As a finishing touch, I rubbed some gold leaf wax rub on it for a gilded look.

Next I used the 2Crafty "Fancy Damask", also a new release.  I kept this more simple and painted it gold.

My last chipboard used was 2Crafty "Leafy Twig Branches".  These were painted with a few different colors in a sort of mottled fashion using yellow, brown and olive paints. 

Thanks so much for visiting.
