Each post I am hoping to share 'a dark Valentine' I have made in the past ...

Back in 2016, I made an easel card using Black Widow from Stitchybears,coloured with Promarkers. The base and easel were matted and layered with black card and embossed red spider web paper...the image had been scallop cut with a circular die and attached to a black card scalloped square. I also added a banner made from green sparkly paper.
The sentiment was printed on the computer, mounted on black card and placed on dimensionals. The final touch was the sparkly spider...

and something I have made for this hop...I am continuing with my postcard flip book.

'My Dark Valentine' is one of Leigh's sentiments - find them here

I have used another of these on the next sleeve, plus the linked hearts from
Whimsical Oddleigh Cherished Heart

At the beginning of February is the Pagan festival, Brigid's Day -
 this made me think of Rick St Dennis' Goddess images. 
I used one of these for my next postcard.

More tomorrow...

Happy Crafting!
