Falling Hearts

Hello there! 
I am on a mission to make as many Valentines as I can in the next couple of weeks, 
so I need all of the inspiration I can get! Today I played along with the
current Case Study Challenge.. Here's my card:



Do people ever ask you how long it takes to make one card? I usually say about an hour, because really, that's how long it takes me! 

NOT this one...
First I misted about 7 or 8 different colours onto the cardstock that I
had stamped and embossed with white EP. (don't ask me why I needed all those sprays to make PINK. I just did, ok? lol...)

Then I proceeded to add: Silks acrylic paints, Gelatos, and Distress Inks. 

2 full episodes of Dr. Who later I got this: 

It's funny because I would definitely call this clean-and-simple, but it was not clean, and most assuredly not simple, lol.... But oh how I love how it turned out! I heard gold and pink was "in" so I incorporated some AC gold glitter paper. Va-va-voom!

Here's the inspiration photo for the Case Study Challenge if you want to play along: 



Thanks for stopping by!
