Stamps Stencils and Printables Mixed Media Card

card 1
 Welcome sweet friends!  A very happy Wednesday to you.  Today I am sharing my final card as guest designer for Word Art Wednesday.  I really pondered this week's project.  On one hand I wanted to do a New Year's card, as this verse will help most of us as we resolve to eat better and exercise more!  I also wanted to create a plaque for my office so I could enjoy this verse all year, but in the end I veered towards Valentine's Day (who knows?!)  Ha!
WAW
What a beautifully designed printable verse this week!  I used a Sizzix die to cut it out and some new Frantage embossing powder, which I picked up on my trip to the country.  I was so excited to find it and when I got home it was PINK!  AHHHH!  Not the white and gold that everyone's using...  But I aimed to get my $7 worth!  ;0
card 2
 I embossed the edges of the die and then inked it with Distress Inks.  I stamped a Tim Holtz splatter stamp in Rose Romance by SU! to further distress it.
card 3
 I made a pretty little flower from sheer fabric and the Tattered Florals die, but I couldn't get it to glue together properly and in the end I popped one of my DIY paper flowers over it!  I bundled some other TH dies in behind it.
card 4
 For my background I stenciled that awesome new dotty stencil with texture paste and poured the Frantage powder over it then heat set.  I sponged it in Rose Romance, then rubbed some white Distress Paint along the edges.  I stamped a crackle stamp too.
card 5
 I cut this bird from brown scrapbook paper, then embossed him lightly with pewter EP, then rubbed him over with gold Distress Paint, then with Stickles.  I'm quite refreshed to see some pink in my life, having been drowned in seas of red and green for the past few months.  Valentine's Day is my absolute FAVORITE crafting holiday!!!
