Claritystamp Challenge - Love 2

Have you had a go at the Claritystamp Challenge yet?  If not there is still time to enter.  Here's another design I made on the theme Love.

Stamps: Claritystamp NDC 69 Love You, Couple from Wee Folk 1
Stencils: NDC 85 Heart and Leaves
Inks:      Archival Black, Adirondack Raspberry
Other:    Spectrum Noir pencils, Sizzix Thinlets Decorative Trim #2

  • Tape the stencil to the top of the card and brush through Raspberry ink.  I am only interested in the left half of the stencil here.
  • Add the heart insert to the top heart and darken the colour here.
  • Use a make-up sponge to wipe the colour off the stencil and enhance the edges.  

  • Stamp the sentiment in the top heart and the couple in the bottom heart using Archival black ink.
  • Trim card to size and then go around the edges of the hearts with coloured pencils to add depth. Also add some shading under the couple.

  • Mask the edges of a blank card and then brush on Raspberry ink.
  • Go round the edges with the colour pencils.
  • Using the dies cut out the decorative strips in a pearlescent card.
  • Using double sided tape stick on the stenciled card and then add the trims using a pen glue.

  1. Love your use of colour, it's so vibrant but subtle at the same time. ;~}

  2. A very pretty card is love the colour. Xx

  3. Thankyou everyone for your kind comments. I meant to give this card to my other half on Sunday but had all the family down visiting and totally forgot. We don't usually do Valentines and it was very hectic here. I will have to save it for next year. x
