Two cards featuring Hearts
Hi there and welcome to my blog today...it's hot!! here and so humid... I need to go get the washing from the line which dries in a flash, but I'll leave to get extra dry!! while I write up my post for the January Twofer Card Challenge #23 - HEARTS.
It is also their 2nd Blogaversary - so congratulations Darnell and your fabulous team --- YEAHH!!!
So I chose to use a simple elongated heart stamp for my cards and created conventional and a non-conventional designs.
For my first card I simply inked the heart in Distress Oxide ink - Pickled Raspberry and stamped a border down one side on a white card panel.. Then I inked the top part of the sentiment stamp and stamped that in place. Next I inked the bottom part but left off the word 'heart' and stamped that leaving enough room to stamp my last pink hear in place of the word. I used the DO to watercolour that heart and to finish added a small clear gem and mounted the panel to a pink card.
For my second card I stamped the heart in Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink in a flower shape, used the same ink to watercolour the petals. I stamped a stem and leaf in Peeled Paint DI and a flower center and fussy cut it and watercolour that too and attached to the flower with foam tape. I flicked some black paint over the image and cut black card to give a small border before attaching to an orange card. To finish I stamped the sentiment strip, edged that with green ink and attached with foam tape.
