Mixed Media Heart of GOLD Valentine by Cheiron Brandon!

Hi friends! Happy Tuesday! I’m delighted to welcome back special monthly blog guest Cheiron Brandon with a gorgeous mixed media Valentine to inspire! Read on and enjoy!

Hi there crafty friends! It’s Cheiron Brandon here and today I have a special mixed media Valentine card using the heart from the From The Vault Rosette dies that I created for one of those friends that has a heart of gold. This card is not super practical to mail but would be great in a package, or with a box of sweet treats, which is how I plan to give it. 

To begin, I cut a panel of Distress Watercolor Cardstock to 4 ¼ x 5 1/2. I added Distress Opaque Texture Paste through the Valentine stencil using a palette knife. Once my paste was dry, I sprayed my panel with water and then added a mixture of Distress Spray Stains and Oxide Spray moving them around with more water before drying the panel. Once my panel was dry, I added some stamping from the Faded Type set using Distress Archival Ink in Ground Espresso. 

Then, I mixed up some Gilded Foundry Wax with a bit of Isopropyl Alcohol and splattered it on my card with a paintbrush, then heat set it with my embossing tool. I also added black and white splatters using Distress Paints in Picket Fence and Scorched Timber.  I trimmed the panel to 4 x 5 1/4 and used my Paper Distresser tool to rough up the edges and then inked those with the Ground Espresso Distress Archival Ink. 

To create the hearts, I cut 3 of them out of Metallic Kraft Stock,  folded them on the score lines and then adhered them with Distress Collage Medium.  I wanted to add an extra layer of shine, so I misted the entire panel with Distress Mica Spray in Tarnished Brass. Once that was dry,  I adhered the inky panel to a white card base, then adhered the hearts to the panel with Distress Collage Medium.

To complete my card, I stamped and embossed the Love You sentiment from the Noteworthy Set onto a strip of Simon Says Stamp Dark Chocolate Cardstock. I love all the sparkle and shine on this card and I can not wait to share it with someone special!
