Hi everybody. Another anniverary card made with a slightly different technique. A came across a lady called Joan at Dear Paperlicious who did a couple of cards with hearts made with a piece of inked card on which she had swiped lots of different colours of ink randomly to fill the piece and then cut the hearts. At the moment she is have a blog break but you will find these cards on her instagram @dearpaperlicious. I loved the look and decided to CASE her card but with some changes obviously.
I started with a leftover piece of cream pearlescent card used for the golden wedding card I made recently. I decided instead of swiping the colours on I would use my brayer inked just at the left hand end to keep the strips of colour regular and quite small. I used Distress Inks in Blueprint Sketch, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet and also Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink. I decided to cut five hearts and then for more interest and texture I dry embossed them using a freebie floral embossing folder from way back, and also cut a white square stitched mat to mount them on to which I inked round the edge with Spun Sugar Distress Ink. I die cut the sentiment and couldn't decide which colour to use of the four already mentioned so added one over the top of the other until I came up with this combination which I thought looked the best, and cut three of the sentiments to mount on top of one another to add more dimension. I then heat embossed using my WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder, and did this a couple of time to build up the shine.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today and I hope to see you again soon.
