Love Me, Do

Stampotique have launched the Stampotique Originals Challenge Blog, and the first challenge is to make a love themed card.

I stamped the edges of the card with a Wendy Vecchi text background stamp and then applied Shabby Shutters distress ink to colour the card. The flourishes were from one of Tim Holtz's new stamp sets that were launched at CHA recently, and were highlighted with a Ranger white pen.

The large heart was cut roughly by hand and splodged with white and red acrylic paint which acted as a resisit for the Brushed Corduroy ink I applied once the paint was dry. It was matted onto a heart cut from brown card and then matted again onto a white card heart that was stamped with parts of a Wendy Vecchi gingham stamp, masking each part before stamping the next. The small gingham hearts were punched out of white cardstock and stamped with the same gingham stamp.

The little man was stamped on white cardstock and then coloured with Promarkers. He was cut out and mounted on the card using 3d foam. His heart was punched and mounted with foam too. And that's about it! I hope you like it, click on the image if you'd like to see a larger view! :)

Dan...I do love it!!! Mort with a pincurl is too stinkin' cute (in a macabre sort of way). I sure wish they would make those goth stamps in the unmounted format. I love them...but am not a fan of woodmounts!! Keep crankin' out the art!!! I love what I see..you are amazingly talented!! Hugs, Rockin Robin C
