Roses on Paper Challenge blog..

Iris has put together a fabulous sketch this week over at ROP challenge blog. Soo..since I had a little extra time to play I put together this Valentine.  I discovered a cool technique while playing with my DCWV glitter paper..if you bend it around a little bit, you have the crackle effect!  I cut out the little hearts using a Sizzlit die, I then dropped some Tim Holtz distress ink on top and rubbed it into the cracks.  Its difficult to see the glitter in the photo, sorry!  But I think it gives it a vintage it!
