Well, I confess I did start my card last Friday, but I didn't finish it until today...I am not speedy with the mix...but it was fun! This card covers Birgit's MIX54 use hearts at least two different medias, Dawn's F4A207 was Be Mine (show her your Valentines) and Toni's WT466 Red, Red, Red.
The base began white. I painted it with Gesso. After dry, I stamped the 100 Proof Press true heart. Let the ink dry and then painted it with a wash of Tim Holtz di spun sugar stain. Once that was dry, I inked the Love definition with VersaFine Vintage Sepia. Time for drying again. Next step was to place a stencil in various corners adding modeling paste. I rubbed Perfect Pearls in pink over the stenciled areas. Stamped the heart arrow, the word devotion, and the Be My Sweet...next to that anatomical correct heart. The heart on the acetate is a handmade stamp...isn't it cool. Random love words and a hand cut corner, a punched heart corner, a chipboard heart and glittered brad heart. There are 8 different kinds of hearts. How many did you spy?
I so appreciate our challenge hostesses who bring us inspiration every week. What a community!
