Black & White & Red All Over

DSCF3119

Remember that joke from when you were a kid?  What's black & white & red all over?   A newspaper!  Corny, huh!  Well this is a black, white & red valentine!  I just had to have PTI's Love Songs, and have barely been able to play with it!  So while perusing Nichole's blog (lots of cool stuff going on there--it makes your head spin!  They're getting buttons!  Woohoo!) I remembered she lets you download little snippets of her patterned cardstock.  I printed out some Black & White Basics here; (scroll all the way down to the bottom) and stamped some hearts in Real Red ink.  I mounted them all on a piece of Real Red cardstock, then on a 4 1/4" square Whisper White card:

The hearts looked kind of blah; I remembered my "note to self" about using glitter, so I coated each heart with a liberal amount of Crystal Effects, then sprinkled on MS's Garnet glitter!  Wowza!  The hearts actually have a rounded, 3D effect.  Very cool IRL!  I added a simple red sentiment and decided not to add anything more that would detract from those blingy hearts!  TFL!
