A last little card for the current Hero Arts contest which is all about Hugs and Kisses and anything to do with Love!
Cardstock: PTI; Neenah
Ink: Antique Linen Distress Ink; Versamark; Versafine Onyx Black; Copics
Stamps: Hero Arts (F5158; CL402; CG420)
Other: PTI Tiny Tags Die; Snowflake Tinsel Embossing Powder; Heart charm (unknown); Glossy Accents; Twine (PTI); corner chomper
I used the lovely Heart Winged Butterfly stamp and the True Friends background stamp from Hero Arts on my card. The little tag is cut with my PTI Tiny Tags die.
I coloured the butterfly using some Copic markers and added some glossy accents only to the larger hearts on the wings. The centre panel is clear embossed using the True Friend background, making sure that the word "Love" was in the frame. I then used the emboss resist technique with some Antique Linen distress ink. I love that shade of ink, I find it very shabby and romantic in a way.
I wrapped some rustic twine around the centre panel and added a heart charm which I have had in my craft drawer forever, together with a little sentiment tag. The panel is popped up with some dimensional foam adhesive.
A bit of an unusual color scheme at this time of year but I had it very clear in my mind that I wanted the butterfly in these colors, rich with Love!
On a personal note, here is a picture of my daughter yesterday totally in her element now that she can ride her bicycle! It makes me so happy!
Wishing you all a fabulous day!
