Love in the New Year!

Happy New Year's Eve eve everyone!

This weeks challenge is Love in the New Year.
I have chosen to do a Valentines card with non-traditional colors

I don't normally use purple but.........
Once I had stenciled the Rose, red just didn't seem a good choice for the back ground. So purple it is!

To do the background on the main card front, I stenciled just the rose over and over with white pigment ink. Once it dried it looks lite blue. Then I pasted the verse in gold glossy paste.

I rough cut the heart by hand. Then edged all three pieces with Gold Brilliance pigment ink.
Simple but fun! Make sure you create your own "Love in the New Year" sample and post it on the Dream it Up Blog.

Happy creating!!


  1. very pretty and love the purple/red combo...not just for the red hat ladies! Great job!

  3. Terrece, this heart really pops! I am loving everyone's love in the New Year...

  5. Beautiful card Terrece, and that stencilled sentiment is FABULOUS! WOW!!

  6. Beautiful card Terrece and I really like the orange/purple color combination. Color opposites on the color wheel always make eye-catching art!
