Full Gauge Valentine

Full Gauge Valentine cu 05389
The Color Challenge(CC516) on Splitcoast today is Pink, White & Melon. I don’t have those exact colors, but I did have a sprayed, stenciled & sponged background leftover with a mix of colors that I hope comes close enough. The pieces you see are what I had left from a long ago project.

The square cut outs down the side were already there (from an IO border die). I used a couple of stencils on my background then sprayed and sponged through the stencils. The gauge was die cut with a circle then the bottom section cut off and used on the right of the greeting w/ a little flower on top. I tell you, not much goes to waste on my craft desk.

The white background was embossed with some tiny little hearts and the heart on the gauge was paper pieced from a tiny section of the background. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by! If you haven’t yet, you still have a few days to enter the DRS Thursday Challenge. This week, So Shapely! Just use 2 different shapes…that’s it! DRS images are not required and there’s a nice prize up for grabs.
