Happy Valentine's Day to all those that are celebrating it! I've made my final card; this one for my son, who is big into computers. Pretty simple, but that's how he likes things.
I started with a Tim Holtz water color card, using the smooth side. I used my heart diffuser as a stamp to make the central heart. I sprayed the heart portion of the diffuser with Evergreen Bough and Rusty Hinge Distress spray and then with water and then stamped it on my card. I dried with a heat tool and again sprayed the heart and repeated as above around the rest of the card, spritzing with water to blend, drying between each stamping. Here are a few in process shots. I also splattered some spray on my craft mat and mopped up the droplets for a little visual texture on the background.
I made a stencil by tracing around the diffuser heart, laid this over the panel and used texture paste and a DecoArt stencil (smoosh) to make the motherboard pattern. While the paste was wet, I added Ranger copper embossing powder and heat dried. I wanted to give the heart more definition, so I glued a fine gauge copper wire around the perimeter. That was fun! NOT!
I didn't like the little empty spot in the upper left part of the heart, so I added a Remnant Rub. A simple Ideaology tag, colored with Cracked Pistachio Distress Paint, a tiny brad embossed in copper to match, and a few letters from Tim Holtz' Label Letters finish off this simple one layer card. I edged the card blank in Versamark ink and heat embossed with the copper. I think my son will appreciate it.
I would like to enter my simple card in the following inspiring challenges:
