Sometimes it can be tough to find just the right card for the man in your life. So often they are over the top mushy or just too silly. Tnis card that I made using Graphic 45’s new Voyage Beneath the Sea collection is just perfect. I love that it’s not in traditioanl valentine colors yet it conveys a valentine’s greeting.
I’ve used lots of Creative Embellishments chippies on this card. If you haven’t seen the latest designs, hurry and go look ’cause there are some fabulous new things! I particularly adore the octopus, there’s something so cute about him, LOL! I lightly painted the chipboard pieces with white gesso that I watered down just a tad as I didn’t want the paint tofill in the etching on the chipboard. Then the seahorse is colored with Lindy’s Grab a Guy Gold and a tiny bit of Cajun Carnelian Red. The seagrass at the bottom is painted with Silks in Teal Zircon and African Jade.
