You Colour My World.

Hello lovelies, I hope you are all well ? Sorry for not being around for a few days we have been decorating our living room finally ! and I have to admit it looks lovely. Even the cats and Miley the dog decided to help (you can imagine the mess). 
But anyway i hope you all had a nice weekend with lots of creating :) 

I wanted to share a Valentines card with you today. Now I have to admit me and the hubs do not celebrate Valentines so it isn't something I normally really do cards for, but i don't know why this year I am feeling the love a lot, and there really is some amazing Valentines crafting items around that I cannot resist. 
Saying the above the card I have made I have used not a Valentines stamp set.
Now you know when you are sitting there watching a movie or something and a card idea comes to you ? well this came to me at 3am when i was sat in bed with Chloe cat demanding a fuss...I know my brain is weird and always comes up with these ideas at random times. 
I LOVE this stamp set by Lawn Fawn (it is called Color my world),  the little hearts are from another Lawn Fawn Set (Love you S'more), this set comes with a smiley face that you can stamp on the crayons, but it is Valentines so I HAD to use the heart :) 
I have coloured this using Spectrum Noir markers and for the pink crayons I have used a previous tutorial on the Spectrum Noir blog on Pink colour focus which can be found here
The border of the shaker is made from Lawn Fawn Stitched Squares dies and all i did was mat and layer them onto some kraft card and run them through my die cutting machine. 
The sentiment I stamped the word colour using an old Pigment inkpad and heat set with clear embossing powder. I then stamped the rest of the sentiment with Versamark ink pad and then heat embossed using WOW white embossing powder. 

 The background of the shaker is made using Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers, I wet down some watercolour cardstock and then scrubbled my markers onto my pallet and then added them to the paper and let the water do its job, when dry I added some flicks of water and blotted it off with tissue. 

I really do think I have a sequin obsession, these are from Taylored Expressions and are amazing ! 
I wanted to add some hearts so I created these using the Banner Parade Die from Memory Box. 
And there you go a fun shaker card using non Valentines Stamps.
Why not go look through your stamps and see what you can create ?
Have a great day and happy crafting 

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges-
