It's Valentines...a special day to celebrate

...love.  Who doesn't want to make one somebody's heart flutter?  It's been forever since Eunice dropped into my studio.  She asked me for something special this year.

I couldn't resist working in a mixed media background with the Dylan Reaveley star stencil.  I used ColourArte's Radiant Gel in Coral Berry.  When it was dry, I rubbed several Gelatos over the top to color the background.

'Eunice' is a 'J Wright' stamp from the discontinued Stamps Happen Company.  She is colored with Copics and Stickles.  I added the netting, crochetd skirt and the silk flower petal underskirt.  The scarf is a bit of gauze colored with markers.  The I love you's are confetti that I embossed in matte powders.

I am entering this card in the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers:
Soss #52 K is for Kiss.  If anyone is snarky, Eunice certainly qualifies.

This card also hits the Mixed Media Card Challenge: #20 {RED}.  To use red and optional hearts on your card.  I've got red net for Eunices' skirt, the heart shaped candy box and  bits of red
                                                                                                           scattered around her outfit!




Here's to Valentine's day and wishing you love overflowing...well, maybe not as overflow as Eunice's bodice...but a cup full~just the same!  What is love?   Recall the Jim Carrey SNL skit.  There are quite a few versions on YouTube.  grin.  That will get you started....

Eunice is looking rather posh all decked out in her red mixed media finery! I'm wondering if she's a distant relation of our Edna! LOL! What an amazing card! Thanks for joining us at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!
