Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge is "Red Letter Day". Valentine's Day will be on us soon, so I chose that as my special day for this project.
I've been feeling in a very "painty" mood lately (not that I can paint mind you, lol). I started this card by applying a layer of red paint to my white card with a craft scraper, then adding a white layer after that. I love the texture it's given the card. The brown paint around the edges was applied with my finger, to give a smudgy rough look. I used the versamark resist techniqe to give a delicate texture to the 3 hearts and applied them to the card, mounting the centre heart on 3d tape.
The script was stamped with Gathered Twigs distress ink, which I dried with a heat gun (D,I. dries VERY slowly on a painted background!). The ticket was coloured with Antique Linen DI and mounted on 3d tape. Finally the whole thing was matted onto a panel from Tim Holtz's Seasonal card stack.
Our ever-generous sponsor Simon Says Stamp
is offering a $50 gift voucher as the prize again this week! The winner
will be chosen at random from those who enter the challenge, so why not
give it a try? At the very least why not head over to the Challenge Blog to see how the other members of the design team have interpreted this weeks theme! :)
