STAMPlorations @ TIME OUT

Good morning all.
I'm posting this morning for the first time as an official  STAMPlorations challenge designer.
Shery is sponsoring the latest challenge over at TIME OUT where the theme is -

VALENTINE'S DAY with a twist of hearts

So some of us newbies are contributing to a post to advertise the fact. Here is my card -

I went with the twist of hearts.

I printed out the sentiment on the computer then stamped the jam jar from the eclectic florals set in Versafine then embossed in white. I inked a heart using Copics the added the back of the jar in embossed white using a Versamark pen, then added glossy accents over the red..
When the GA was dry I inked my panel with DI Salty Ocean to create an Ombre effect, then softened the effect by adding water with a paint brush and a few drops of water on the inked panel and some splashes of colour on the white. I added some linen thread to the neck of the jar to create some vertical interest. 
I shall also enter it over at -
Inkspirations - Ombre

Thanks for stopping by, come back soon.
