Happy Valentines Day!!

Happy Valentines Day, hope you have all had a great day, here is a card I made using more masculine colours!  Although I love pinks and reds I wanted to try something a little different.  The heart is made using up more scraps from my basket.. A while ago I had a play with some distress inks, I put some inks onto my craft mat and spritzed with water then I placed my Antique Brocade stamp in the ink and stamped onto some paper.  This gives a really watery image which I love!   I then stamped the large heart from the Hero Arts Hearts Trio set and cut out the image.  The background paper is from Basic Grey.
Thanks for looking.
