Gothic Valentine Blog Hop 2021 Winner and "Hugs and Kisses" Valentine slimline card by Leigh!

Howzit Creative Friends!
I'm busy putting the finishing touches on the release launch of my gorgeous new Spring designs later this week!  We're very excited to share makes featuring them with you all during our upcoming March blog hop in celebration of Spring so stick around for their launch and then come and join the fun😁

Before the new fun begins its time to announce the winner of February's Gothic Valentine hop🖤
Thank you again for playing and sharing your dark romance makes with us!

You're the winner of this set of Love themed sentiments I didn't release in time for the hop so you're the first to get these in your collection😉
Please send me a message to claim your prize before March 8 and here's your brag badge for your blog😉  Please link it up to the hop post HERE!

 Today I'm sharing the Valentine slimline card I made for my hubby featuring the Heart Balloons from the Romeo Balleigh Monster set, Scratch Hearts background and the "Hugs and Kisses" senti from the Valentine Senties set not yet released.
 I used my Silhouette Cameo 4 to print and fussy cut out the Heart Balloons and "Hugs and Kisses" sentiment.
I also cut a mat layer which I coloured with Midas gold Spectrum Noir pigment ink and then mounted the images to the mat with black foam tape.
 I made the scrumptious mixed media Scratch Heart background with Distress Oxide Sprays in shades of red and pink and applied the same gold pigment ink to the edges of the slimline panel.  I coloured the Heart Balloons with Copics and Prismacolor pencils and added pretty sparkle to them with a clear Spectrum Noir sparkle glitter pen....the shimmer is so pretty in real life! 

I completed my Valentine card by mounting the panel with black foam tape onto a slimline card I made from heavy weight black cardstock.  I'm pleased with the fun dimensional bold look of the finished card😁
Thanks for stopping by to see today's featured make!
Stay tuned for my Spring Release!
Happy Creating!

Well done! See you back here in a few days!
