Peachy Keen Guest Designer Day 4

Hello, once again! I am nearing the end of my guest designer spot of at Peachy Keen Stamps, and it is making me just a little depressed. But you know what helps me feel better? More Valentine's projects!!
The card I made for today showcases the stamp set that I will be giving away at the end of my stint here, Valetine Cupids. I am in love with every one of the sayings that Kathy has put into this set, and come on, the mice are simply adorable!
For the heart background paper, I stamped the heart outlines from the set in Versamark then heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. I then took my Tea Dye, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress Inks and blended them over the paper. The clear embossing acts as a resist, so that the true colors from the background paper stay true.
I then used the Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress Inks again on the cardstock paper that I stamped my image on and blended them. I stamped the mouse using the Walnut Stain ink, and used my Copics to color ink bits and pieces of the mouse, and popped up the sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed today's card and will see you back here for my last day tomorrow. Don't forget to leave a comment here and at the Peachy Keen blog for your chance to win a set of the Valentine Cupids. On Saturday morning I will edit this post and announce the winner.

***Edited*** Hopefully the picture looks somewhat better now. I figured out what is wrong with my camera, and I now need to use it on manual focus only until I either get it fixed or purchase a new camera. I will apologize ahead of time, but my camera has gone into an early retirement, so I am having to make do with a sub. As soon as I can, I will replace my photos with some better lighted…
