Good Saturday morning everyone! It's black tie week at Dynamic Duos and the featured colors are Real Red and Basic Black. There is also a dessert option of a valentine theme. Be sure to pop over to the other design team members blogs for more inspiration! I tell you, all these gals are talented!
I wanted to use the Affection Collection set, especially the little set of wings with the heart, so that was my starting point. I decided on going the shabby chic/distressed route also. First I stamped the wings twice with Stazon Black ink and fussy cut them out. I sponged real red onto the bottom set and crumb cake on the top set. I cut a heart out of red glimmer paper and layered it on the wings with a dimensional.
I ran the red background paper through my Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper EF, then sponged it with Crumb Cake ink for more distressing/antiquing.
I've seen a few different tutorials on how to do the crinkly bow, like on my card, but the easiest way I've found to do this is to first tie your ribbon in a bow, spray it with water, crinkle or wad it up in your hand, and then use your heat tool to dry it. Easy Peasy!
The rest is pretty self explanatory.
Here's a list of my supplies.....

Paper: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Polka Dot Parade DP, First Edition Dp, Red Glimmer
