Crafty boots challenge -- Valentines

Welcome to another Crafty boots challenge .This fortnights
theme is Valentines.

 For this card I used Ladybug Tilda ,I so love this Tilda Stamp.I didn't have
any cream and black paper,but I did find this black and white pack, unused
(shameful again) to take the whiteness of it I used antique linen distress ink,
I also didn't have any off white lace or ribbon so I had to improvise with these
I dipped them in a cup of black coffee and then put them straight under some
cold water not for the colour to be too strong.I had some funny looks of the
children when they seen me doing this ,I think they thought I'd finally gone
mad lol.The layers of the card have been machine stitched as I like this effect
and I used copic to colour ,the punch is from ek success (intertwined arches)
and the heart is an x cut die
I really enjoyed making this card.
thanks for looking

Fabulous card! I love how the little girl's heart mirrors the large one in the background - very clever stuff! The black and red looks amazing together - really allows the image to pop!

This is just gorgeous and I love how you have dyed white to get the off white/creamy colour you wanted - definitely something I will have to try!! :) xxx

I have been admiring this card for some time but I never imagined how inventive you had been to create it. I must try to remember how you did all these things.
