Valentine’s Etchings

The antique look works really well with this Artistic Etchings stamp set.  I ruffled the edges a lot and bent corners to the layers, it even more effective on the Newsprint DSP. I sponged the backgrounds with crumb cake a various shades of reddish-purple colors for a bit of a lovey-dovey feeling.  Just in time for Valentine’s Day!  This card is entered into two challenges: Inkspiration Sketch #53 & Just Add Ink #51.  Found another challenge to enroll this card in The Paper Players #33.
