Hi there and welcome to my blog. Today I am sharing another '15 minute card' with you. This is appearing on the CBDT blog from today. I have used stamps from the CB set Punky Hearts and a sentiment from an old CB words set. I have also used Distress Inks - Mustard Seed, Vintage Photo, Festive Berries and Tea Dye; Sepia Versafine ink; Copper embossing powder.
I started by creating a background panel using white card, and blended the DI's all over. I then stamped a heart image onto another piece of white card and heat embossed with the Copper powder. I cut the heart out, and coloured it in red using a DI, water and a brush. I coloured the fixings with a gold pen.
Next I went back to my background panel and blended Walnut Stain DI around the edges. I then stamped some distressed hearts randomly all over and attached the heart with dimensional glue. I added a sentiment and attached the panel to the base card.
I really enjoyed making this quick card, not least because it features one of my favourite Steampunk stamps. I wanted to create a design that would suit a man or a woman, so I used warm vintage colours, but I think it would look good in bright bold colours too. And it's not just a Valentines card, it could be a birthday or miss you card too. Thank you for popping by today, I'd like to wish you all a Happy New Year and I hope you'll visit again soon :)
