Hi there everybody. This is a card I made for my hubby for our recent anniversary..39th actually, gosh! I used a Chocolate Baroque set of stamps called Geometric Trading Hearts being a bit more masculine I feel.
I decided to get out my gelli plate to make the background using Peacock Feathers and Dusty Concord Distress Inks applied with a brayer. I just rolled bits of each of the inks over the plate and then added the heart pattern you can see using a Leonie Pujol Embossing Folder called Dotty Heart. I inked up the positive side to get the pattern of little hearts using my brayer and the Dusty Concord Ink. I then pressed the inked side down on to the gelli plate to transfer the inked design and used a piece of Clarity Stencil card placed over and rubbed over to transfer the background, and I got the result you can see here. Not all the hearts came out but I liked the more random look.
I then inked the Geometric Heart using the Dusty Concord which looks much darker as I used my stamp positioner and inked it several times to get a good impression, especially as I used the Distress Ink which doesn't cover as well, and the heat embossed with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder. I finished by cutting a mat using a coordinating piece of purple card to add to the topper, and also die cut the sentiment and little heart and then added it on to a 7" square white card cut down a little to leave just a half inch border around it.
Thank you for dropping by today and I'll see you again soon.
