Cupid.. Real or not?


I have always loved cupid!  So who was Cupid....

Cupid, one of the gods in Roman mythology that controls love. He is the Roman counterpart to the Greek god Eros. His name comes from the Latin word cupido, which translates to “passion, desire, yearning, wanting, or longing.” However, in Latin, Cupid is known as Amor. The Latin word means “love, infatuation, or passion.”


Regardless of your belief in cupid, you have to agree he is adorable!

Are you getting excited about Valentines day?? I am only excited because I love all the cute decor out in the stores and all the hearts !!  

Using
 Just for Fun Rubber stamps!!! So much fun!!! My card for you today:


Cupid was embossed with silver gray embossing powder and Love was embossed with clear detail embosssing powder.  Layered, and gems.





Supplies Used:  Just for Fun Rubber stamps:  Romantic Cube CB9020

Distressed Flower


Using another square canvas, 
I created this using DecoArt products.
I love their quality products at reasonable prices.
 I made a another vintage look sign/canvas.
This one has a giant distressed paper flower...
I used a Deco Art stencil, crackle paste so the sign looks aged and the letters distressed.  I used several layers of paint and crackle paste until I achieved the look I desired.  I also used a media antiquing cream, americana metallic multi surface.
