Hi to you all. This is the first anniversary of the year and I am a little late with it. My mojo is still a bit elusive but I am feeling better at present though don't know when the surgery will be but am hoping to know soon. I seem to lack inspiration when it comes to anniversary cards, but after thinking for a bit I decided to use my Nellie Snellen Heart die and a freebie heart embossing folder and some blue and pink acrylic paint for a change.
I found a snippet of white card and using the blue paint I watered it down slightly and smooshed the heart through it, and as it was still quite thick it made quite a pretty pattern. I then found some pink which has a glossy finish, and after the blue was dry smooshed that over the top.
I then found another snippet of white card and embossed using the hearts embossing folder. I then added Adirondack Stonewashed Ink using a blending tool, and then using the pink paint I brushed some over a few of the hearts to tie it in with the die cut heart.
I cut a piece of dark blue card and mounted the embossed piece on to it.
I used a snippet of the blue card for the sentiment and in order to place the words in the right place on the strip I put the embossed background and the heart in the Misti and laid the strip where I wanted it to be, and then placed the two word stamps in the right position before removing the heart. I then stamped the two words on to the strip using Versamark Ink and WOW Opaque Brilliant White Embossing Powder. I finished by mounting the background on to a white card approximately 6" x 6" square, and then adhered the strip and finally the heart on top.
Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope to see you again soon.
I am entering the following challenges:
Pixie's Crafty Workshop - Weeks 275/6 where we use up our snippets of card and paper etc.
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.
Muse Challenge - No. 210 ( I was inspired by the hearts embossing, the colour blue and the sentiment strip with the white embossing)
