Love is in the Air

So I have created this Valentine's card, not sure whether I will give this one or another that I have made yet......

.....created from a concoction of mixed media, I actually love all the bright colours clashing with each other.
First I hand drew a heart shape from paper, once cut out I then used the template, placing it over my white card I painted, dabbed and stamped!  I used circle, heart and word templates and then used my hexagon stamp here and there.
My black lines came from the end of an old credit card in my black Dylusions paint, the lid is nice and wide so makes it quite easy to do this - although I have had to throw the pot away now, it just ended up going very gloopy, almost dry, I was quite upset as I use black a fair bit so I looked it up on the internet to see if anyone else had had this problem.....yes, and the solution...is to spray the pot with some water after every use!
I used my free Love stamp that came with an old Craft Stamper magazine, such a beautiful stamp and attached this on the top over some torn paper with hexagons on (came from the inside of an envelope!)
A bit of scribbling with a black pen around the outside and finished.....
