A Graphic Valentine`s card and A Flower Valentine`s Card

I made this Graphic Valentine`s card :

as I have no big heart stamp also I cut by my self the heart stencil and Sponged three red colors from Distress Ink and added the Perfect Pearl on it

and then I run it on my Big Shot with one of my new Embossing Folder.

Here is the shiny that you can see on the result I made on my heart with Perfect Pearl:

  15. I really like that you've coloured only some of the flowers on your second card, Monika; very effective! Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week.

  16. Oh I just love that shiny pink heart Monika! What a great idea to do your own stencil, I will try that too. Btw you use alot of perfect pearls, can you tell me how to avoid getting perfect pearls everywhere on your card? Even though I put it on the stamped image I want, it just goes and stays everywhere else on the card! :( Thanks for your advice! Have a great week dear!

  19. Both cards are gorgeous. I love the embossed heart, it is so effective. Thank you so much for joining us at The Card Concept.

  20. Wow, look at the heart, the colors seem to change and shine differently, maybe it's the effect of both perfect pearls but also the raised areas from the embossing. Whatever it is, it looks spectacular.
    The flower card, gorgeous, this is a stamp set I'd love to have myself, I've seen it around. Beautiful coloring and you made it work so well with the sketch.
