Simon Says - Love Is In The Air

Hi Everyone...welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. Thank you for joining us for last week's challenge and we hope you can join us this week too because

The first Monday of the month is when the Design Team showcase a particular brand or company and this month we are all using fabulous products from PaperArtsy.
We are also welcoming the lovely and very talented Laura Cassina as our February Designer In The Spotlight. If you haven't visited Laura's Instagram page yet, pop over, you are in for a real treat.
The theme for this week is...
I created a Valentine's Day card using PaperArtsy Are You Cerise, Lemoncello and The Sage Infusions with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Mosaic 3D Texture Fade, Sizzix True Love Colorize, Brushstroke Flowers Mini Thinlits, Simon Says Fancy Love die and Love You Greetings stamp set for the sentiments.
I sprayed an A2 panel of Distress Watercolor card with Lost Shadow Distress Spray Stain and Distress Oxide Spray and embossed with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Mosaic 3D Texture Fade.
I sprinkled PaperArtsy The Sage Infusions on to the panel, spritzed with water, allowed the colour to run into the debossed areas and dried. 
I die-cut the hearts from Vellum and Distress Watercolor card using Tim Holtz/Sizzix True Love Colorize Thinlits.
I sprinkled PaperArtsy Infusions on A2 panels of Distress Watercolor card, Are You Cerise and Lemoncello on the left panel and In the Sage on the right, spritzed with water to allow the colours to run and blend and dried.
I die-cut Simon Says Fancy Love
and Tim Holtz/Sizzix Brushstroke Flower Mini Thinlits
I die-cut the arrow using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Lovestruck Colorize and attached with the Fancy Love die-cut to the Vellum heart using Distress Collage Medium. I added dots of Distress Collage Medium behind the Fancy Love die cut on the back of the vellum and fixed to the smaller Distress Watercolor card heart.
I attached the heart to the panel using Distress Collage Medium Matte and fixed the outline heart die-cut with True Love Colorize Thinlits, in place at an angle.
I assembled the flowers and leaves and fixed in place popped up on Simon Says Foam Squares to add dimension.
I added the extra die cut layers to the arrowhead die-cut from black card and Silver Idea-ology Metallic cardstock.
and to the arrow flight section die-cut from Distress Watercolor card coloured with Lost Shadow Distress Spray Stain and Distress Oxide Spray.
I stamped the sentiment from Simon Says Love You Greetings on to a thin strip of black card, inked with Versamark ink, sprinkled with Simon Says Detail White Embossing Powder, heat set and fixed in place with foam squares.
To finish, I matted the panel on to Distress Black HeavyStock trimmed to be slightly larger and fixed to a white card blank.
