a slightly gothic valentine

using tim's valentine embossing folder on card spritzed with various red colour washes plus red perfect pearls mist. When dry i swooshed a black archival over the raised text, then sprinkled it with clear embossing powder.
the edges were distressed and edged with black diamond stickles.
the heart is from tims new cupid die, coloured with red pepper dabber then rock candy crackle, edged in white.
the roses are made from the tattered pinecone in black card  then dipped in red utee.
tim's mini flourish is embossed with black sparkle embossing powder.
