This card is a romantic Tilda!  For the first time I TRIED paper piecing my image.  I was told at Hobby Lobby that I could use E6000 Adhesive between the layers to achieve this look. WRONG..   After it had dried on it's own, the image had just melted down into the bottom layer!  whine....  I was hoping it would have gave it a little lift.  I think some use a Silicon, but I am not sure what one or where to buy.
I will have to research some more.  The sentiment came from Michael's $1 bin.  This was the last of this paper I have hoarded for about 5 years!  It is gorgeous.  I'm not even sure who the paper company is anymore.  And this is the last of this pretty ribbon.  Chipboard is by K &Company.  Flowers are by Prima.  
Thanks for stopping by.  Love  your visits!

Darling Valentine card Peggy! Love that wonderful black ribbon and bow! It's gorgeous. Have you tried using pop dots to creative some dimension on your card. A liquid glue won't work. I love using 1/16" raised dots under my images that I want to pop off my card.
Hugs,
BARB

Hi Peggy, your card is stunning. I love all the layers and your colouring is fab. Unfortunately to enter the PFP challenge you have to colour your image with promarkers or aqua markers and as you are a copic certified designer I assume you've used your copics. Thanks for your interest in our challenge. Hugs, Denise x
p.s. obviously if I'm incorrect please let me know :)

The Crafty Den said...

Hi Peggy, thank you so much for letting me know that you have indeed used promarkers on your card - I apologise for my assumption! As I said before your card is gorgeous and I love your sweet image. Thank you for joining us at PFP this week and we hope you can join in again sometime. Hugs, Denise, PFP DT x
