Welcome to my blog!
Today I will show a Valentine card I have made for my beloved husband.
I started with the background using Distress Oxide in Gathered twigs on Distress mixed media heavystock, and then stamped it with the text stamp from CMS328 Entomology set with Archival ink in Sepia.
Then I diecut the hearts with a movers & shapers die and then used the same "treatment" as the background on the hearts. Then adhered the hearts to the background with Distress Collage medium. After that I colored the hearts with Distress crayons in Festive berries and Gathered twigs. I used Grit paste and Distress crayons round the edges to get some texture and a distressed look.
I diecut the "love-sign" from Woodgrain cardstock with Sizzix Tim Holtz Planks die. I inked it with Distress Oxide Gathered twigs and Distress ink in Walnut stain. For the word I used my Sizzix Tim Holtz Deco die. I cut the letters first from chipboard and then from Kraft cardstock which I sanded, then glued them together, for dimension. I used ideaology mini fasteners and hempstring for the hanging.
I used a Ideaology Hitch fastener to hang the sign on.
The sign in the upper left corner is a Ideaology Wood slice which I distressed the edges on with Distress ink in Walnut stain and mounted a story stick on. I used Distress crayon in Festive berries on the story stick to get the word more visible.
In the lower left corner I used some Ideaology pieces, such as Mummy cloth colored with Distress stain in Festive berries and Frayed burlap, a piece of Ruler ribbon inked with Walnut stain, Ruler piece distressed with Walnut stain ink and finally another Hitch fastener.
In the lower right corner I used one of the new dimensional domes, placed a photo of my husband in it and also put in some small hearts from Kraft cardstock diecut from a Tim Holtz die called Shape strips. (It was difficult to take a good photograph from this because of the reflections)
I hope my husband will appreciate this card.
