Valentines for Art Friends

I'm happy to be part of a group of five art friends who enjoy getting together to make mixed media art projects, to take road trips to artsy places, and to seek out yummy lunch places.   I made these Valentines for the other four.

I stamped onto deli paper, used liquid watercolor on dress, fussy cut image, glued onto chalkboard heart.  Then I wrote with chalk marker and white pen.
This was followed by layering more hearts underneath.

Here's a Valentine I made today.  

The cherub is from Heather A. Hudson on Etsy.  Washi tape and other bits from my collection of old papers complete the card.

The inside has a scored and taped edge to create a shadow box.  Prior to taping, a heart shaped cut-out is framed, and an insert is placed on the back card panel.
