I started with a snippet of white card 4" square and stamped the flourish using Archival Black Ink which stays wet long enough to heat emboss, which I did with WOW Clear Embossing Powder. Before going any further I decided to add some colour to this piece of card. I used three Distress Inks, Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves and Shaded Lilac, swiping the pads randomly over a piece of acrylic and then spritzing with some water and moving the piece of card around in the inks until sufficiently covered.
After searching through my stash I managed to find a heart stamp small enough in an old set from Hunkydory called Celebration. I found another small snippet of white card and covered it with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink straight from the pad, and used a piece of kitchen towel to take a little of it away and this left a bit of a pattern on it which I thought looked quite nice. When dry I stamped two of the hearts on the reverse and cut them out. When dry I added some Clear Wink Of Stella to the hearts to make then sparkle a little. Unfortunately this doesn't show up terribly well.
I found a line peel off in silver and to match it in with the flourish I used a Black Promarker to colour it, and cut two pieces to hang the hearts from. I then matted this on to a snippet of black card.
I finished by fixing this to my white square base card and then added a sentiment peel off, again coloured with the Black Promarker.
I hope that there is enough white space on the card for it to be an acceptable entry in the LIM Challenge, but it is quite plain without any extra embellishment, so I am taking a chance and entering it anyway.
Thank you for looking at my blog today. See you again soon.
I am also entering the following challenges:
Pixie's Crafty Workshop - Week 244 where we use our snippets of paper and card etc.
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - It's Hip To Be Square.
