Anniversary Card

I created this card for my DH for our anniversary!
I started with a small dictionary page and tore the edges to distress it a bit more than the fading that had already taken place.  I stamped the heart in black pigment ink on the page and embossed with black embossing powder.  I watercoloured the inside of the heart in red and then added some shimmery red paint over it to give it just a bit more texture.  I painted the outside of the heart with shimmery brown paint.  Once dry, I glued the page to the front of a brown card and added a black strip to the left hand side which I had painted with the same red shimmery paint.  I added round punchies in black over it, again, to add texture.  I watercoloured a fussy cut greeting and mounted it below the heart using 3D foam tape.  Thinking it needed "a bit of something" I added some stamped flourishes (QF) in red on the outside edges and used my stipple stamp with black ink as well.  That was better!!
