I made these cards a few weeks ago and meant to share them before now, but life got in the way. Hope you like!
This first one is from a set called Love Grows Here by Taylored Expressions. I found it at Archiver's, just before their going out of business sale started. They had a card using this image on display in the store and I loved what they did. This is my simple version. I used colored pencils and odorless mineral spirits to color the image. I added some Wink of Stella glitter pen to the hearts, but it's very subtle. The paper, tag and twine are all Doodlebug. I popped up the image and the tag with foam dots. On the original card in the store, they had sponged clouds on the background and I really wanted to do that, but I was too afraid I would mess it up, so I instead sponged distress ink on with the image in the Spellbinder's square die. One of these days though, I will get brave enough to practice sponging clouds!
This next one uses Lawn Fawn's Science of Love stamp set and dies, again purchased at Archiver's (I sure am going to miss that store. :( sniff ). I wanted to link the set to their website, but it is down as I am writing this. This link will take you to the blog post showcasing the set. This is the card though that inspired the one I made. I put my own spin on it and am very happy with the result.
The sentiment was stamped with some old, old Close To My Heart alphabet stamps called Sans Small Uppercase. I added some Stickles in the heart on the sentiment. Again the background paper is Doodlebug and I colored the images with colored pencils and odorless mineral spirits.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
I hope you are keeping warm wherever you are.
It's currently 2 degrees outside right now.
But, the sun is shining, so it's a good day.
