Distress Oxide Valentine
by Laura Fulcher

Greetings friends.  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  Today I want to share a card using Distress Oxides for the background coloring along with the new Butterfly Heart Frame.  The ironic part of this card is that I chose to not use the butterfly on the card.

To make the card, I first took a 4" x 4" piece of white cardstock and sponge on three colors of Distress Oxide inks.  I then sprayed the background with water to create water spots:

For the heart, I used a different set of inks:

I wanted to pop up the white heart outline around the pink heart, so I cut out that piece out of foam as well white cardstock.  I glued the white cardstock on top of the foam to add extra dimension to the card.  Perhaps you can see the dimension from the side view:

To finish the card, I added some clear rhinestones to the centers of some of the flowers for extra sparkle.
