Sophisticated Valentine’s ATC

Today I wanted to create a sophisticated ATC for Valentine’s Day, so I combined two challenges – The Little Paper Shop’s Red Black and White Challenge with the Little Red Wagon’s Challenge #15 – Red With Bling – and created today’s ATC.
I created the stunning red background by laying decorative transfer tape over white cardstock and adding black velvet ric rac from Basic Grey for the borders. I then painted the Magistical Memories chipboard heart with an Aidorondac Acrylic Paint Dabber in Pitch Black and added a few rhinestones for the finishing touches.
The result? An unusual ATC in one of my favorite color palettes!
