You Caught My Heart

Good afternoon. Hope you are all enjoying your weekend so far.

I had real fun making this card today. Not a DP in sight - I started by colourising a piece of white cardstock with the direct to paper technique - using two different shades of red inks and then overstamped this with Creative Expressions text backgroung stamp in black ink. The top half of the card I used another Creative Expressions background stamp - Crackle Effect stamped with Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Red EP. The bottom half of the card is a piece of red cardstock that has been run through the Bigshot with the Hearts embossing folder and then sanded to reveal the centre core. The cute Penny Black image has been coloured with Copics. The sentiment is Papermania cardstock stickers. I didn't have a red heart shaped button so I coloured a pink one with my Poppy PM.

I have made this for my hubby for Valentine's as his latest hobby is fishing - he's gone fishing this morning whilst I was making this!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

  1. Penny Black Saturday - Happy Valentine's
  2. ASFOS - Recipe
  3. Cupcake Craft - Red & White

Thanks for popping over.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
