PaperArtsy challenge : Shiny stuff

So the new challenge at PaperArtsy is "shiny stuff".
I decided to combine some products I haven't used for a while (embossing and metal), and made a valentines card.
The background stamp is from HP1006, and has been embossed with gold. The LOVE stamp is from JOFY25.
The hearts are Tim Holtz Alterations movers & shapers dies, using red metal (mounted on black card to make it stable, as taught by Lin and Leandra)
It is hard to see in the photo, but the red card used to mat the main card and the Love stamp is shiny too.
Bling on Valentines day... (sorry)

PaperArtsy Challenge - Fragile Papers

There is a new format for the challenges on the PaperArtsy Blog. Over this 2 week period the theme is Fragile Papers.
I watched Leandra's videos (see here video1, video2, video3)
I decided to try the brayer method she showed on Tim Holtz tissue paper

 I used Fresco Paints (Beach Hut, South Pacific, Zesty Zing, Yellow Submarine, Claret, Snowflake)
The numbers stamp is Mini 22, and the script stamp I am no sure where it is from.
I used a piece of the creation to make a card. I put the tissue paper over black card (making the background look darker), and add the Lin Brown stamps ELB01 and ELB02.

Yes, I'm still making Christmas cards...

These two cards were inspired by Tim Holtz
