I trimmed Distress Watercolor card to 4" x 5.1/4", pencilled in some lines and used my trusty Tim Holtz Craft Pick to make holes, ready for some faux stitching, a handy alternative when you don't have time to look out the sewing machine.
To create a quick background, I spritzed Antique Linen Distress Oxide Spray on to my Glass Media Mat, picked the ink up on a piece of clear plastic and smooshed it on to the card panel, leaving it for a few seconds to let the ink soak into the card.
I dried the card with my heat tool, spritzed with water and dabbed off the excess with kitchen towel. I die-cut 3 hearts from a Distress Oxide Spray background I had created earlier using Victorian Velvet and Spiced Marigold with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Heartfelt BigZ die.
I used a Sakura Black Micron Pen to create the faux stitching, doodled around the edges of the die-cut hearts and fixed the hearts in place using Distress Collage Medium Matte and Tim Holtz/Sizzix Mini Foam Adhesive to create dimension.
I die cut "Love" from Simon Says Stamp Black Cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Love Die and fixed to the panel with Distress Collage Medium Matte.
I coloured small white self adhesive pearls from my stash with Splendor and Enchanted Distress Alcohol Pearl inks using a small paintbrush. I added drops of the ink to my Glass Media Mat but you have to be quick because it dries fast and what do you know, they were the perfect match for the Distress Oxide Sprays colours on the hearts.
I fixed the pearls in place with Distress Collage Medium Matte and matted the panel on to an A2 white card blank. To complete the sentiment, I inked "with" from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Simple Sayings with Black Soot Archival, stamped on to a scrap of Distress Oxide Spray card and trimmed.
