Valentine ATC

I call this “Love Is…” and sent it off to Ontario, Canada this morning. 

I’ve been saving these thin plastic coasters I got (in a dollar bin, I believe) for a couple of years now and this seemed like the right occasion to try playing with them.  I stamped the definition of Love stamp with Stazon first onto the coaster after I trimmed it to 2 1/2 x 3 1/2.   Next, I added the picture of the couple and the heart (which I stamped on vellum and embossed with black.  It looked good but lacked brightness and spunk – so I added the white backing with the German scrap border.  Glued the whole thing together with Diamond Glaze – which was messy since I didn’t plan it out – but it worked well and I really liked the silver popping through occasionally.  It gave the whole card dimension it was lacking initially.

Lastly, I colored the heart with Prismacolor markers and a silver paint pen.
