For the background I used some Tim Holtz seasonal paper from my stash. After I cut the square piece with the Valentine words I used Versamark around the edges and added some glittery red embossing powder. It has some gold flecks in it - perfect to coordinate with the gold trim I added behind the red border. A couple days ago I used a new Cracked embossing folder that my sister gave me for my birthday; well this NEW Checkerboard folder was also in the package and I used it on the red Coredinations paper - lightly sanding the top to distress it.
I stamped my Tim Holtz Crazy Bird stamp on watercolor paper and used Distress Markers to colour him and his box of chocolates in using lots of pinks and reds. For the bow I used some gold Perfect Pearls with water added and a bit of Stickles in the center to coordinate with the other gold touches on my page. I carefully cut his wing and used some pop dots to make it look like he was holding the heart box.
Inside, I used two of the TH sentiments that match the Crazy Bird stamps and used the Perfect Pearls again to colour in my hearts.
