Hi everyone. I made this card for Hubby for Valentine's Day using a
Mo Manning digital image and coloured it using Tea Dye, Brushed
Corduroy, Walnut Stain and Black Soot Distress Inks applied with a
waterbrush, and also used a couple of stencils for the background.
I then cut a piece of white card to fit a 6" square card and found a large heart shaped stencil from Clarity which I received when I was a member of their stencil club and which I have never used. It has an outer shape and then a pretty inner floral heart which I didn't want to use this time. I then placed another stencil from That Special Touch called Paws for Thought under the aperture heart stencil and brushed Festive Berries through it to give a patterned heart shape. I wasn't totally happy with the colour so I used my Inktense Pencils and a waterbrush and went over all the pattern to give a much stronger red as the original looked a bit pinky which I didn't think was terribly masculine. I also used this on the heart that the sweet little pug is holding so that the colours matched. I then attached it to the card.
I finished by adding a sentiment on to the heart using Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink and heat embossed it with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder, and then added the dog over the background heart and used some Stick It Silicone Glue to give it a bit of dimension.
Thank you for visiting me here today and I hope to see you again soon.
