Valentines with the Craft Room

My second post of the day - see below for my Gingersnaps DT piece "Words of Wisdom".  Time for a new challenge at the Craft Room and this fortnight the DT would like to see our Valentine creations.  Here is my entry:-

Again it's 8x8 in size.  The base was gessoed, sponged with distress inks:- Victorian Velvet and Antique Linen.  I then overstamped with a Debbie Moore brocade stamp in a Memories shadow ink, Rose - you have to look carefully.

The border (another Debbie Moore stamp) was stamped using Sepia Versafine, a spine of an old poetry book (have used some of the pages and covers for other things) was added with lace under.
A poem from the aforementioned book was distressed and again stamped with a Debbie Moore stamp.  Hearts, frame and image are from Crafty Individuals.

My lady and bundle of postcards are also from Crafty Individuals.  The postcards have been stamped in sepia again and then coloured with watercolour pencils.  Edges have been distressed. 

As well as the fabulous Craft Room challenge I am entering this into the following challenges:-

Cheerful Stamp Pad - "Romance is in the Air"

Creative Stamp Friends - "SomethingOld/Antique"
My book spine is from an old poetry book as is the poem.

Stamps R Us - Valentine/Love
