Hello again! As promised, I'm posting another Valentine today which is actually being published on the same day as my last. (It was a late night last night.) This one's very simple, and I was able to use my brand new Impression Obsession Heart Flourish die. I love those delicate flourishes, and it makes me happy to shift my gears to a more feminine card this time.
Nothing too amazing here, but I did enjoy putting to use some of my paper stash...yes, I do own some softer looking papers! I began with another upcycled store bought invitation, covering the back with coordinating card stock, and adding gesso to the front edges. I cut two more layers of plain white paper for the front and distressed the edges. I edged the bottom most layer with Versamark ink and dusted and embossed with PINK Frantage! I think I'm turning into a "pink" person! While I had the Frantage out, I also embossed the heart portion of the die cut.
For my background panel, I chose a polka dotted paper, and inked up a Inkadinkadoo script stamp with Victorian Velvet Distress ink to lay down some text. "Love" (Rubber Stampede) was heat embossed in white. I had to tape off a portion of the stamp before inking so it would fit in with my design.
The arrow is a Spellbinders die, and I embossed with Aged Silver Frantage and my new Opalettes embossing enamel "Wild Hibiscus". Oh, I do love the contrast of the metals and enamels with the softness of the dies, background, and sentiment.
This card was so easy, I made two more while dinner was in the oven-- minus the Frantage! Pink for my daughter, red for my Mother and Father in Law and brown from my brother and sister in law. The bottom shot shows how I covered that horrible "I bought this cheap card in a pack from Target" insignia. I love turning trash into treasure!
I would like to enter my PINK card into the following inspiring challenges:
