Make My Monday: Messy Backgrounds

Hi everyone.  Today it's my turn to choose the challenge at Make My Monday.  I have chosen the theme of messy backgrounds mainly because getting messy is something I don't seem to do enough of these days. 

I decided to go with a valentine theme, although I know I'm a few days late with this!  I always think it's really difficult to make valentine's cards for men, so that's what I had in mind when I made this one. 

I created the background using Brushos and water, then added a sprinkling of Wow! embossing powder in Mermaid's Tail, which is a kind of silver, shimmery irridescent powder.

This heart is a Leonie Pujol die cut.  I die cut the heart and the swirls and embossed them with different colours of Wow! embossing powder, then stuck them onto my card.   Finally I added the sentiment "I love us", which is from and Idea-ology pad by Tim Holtz.

I hope you can join us this week at Make My Monday.

Sian. xx
